Self-lubricating TriboShield® coatings serve a wide range of industries
GGB, an industry leader and innovator in tribology and surface engineering technologies, announces the launch of its new TriboShield® line of polymer coatings. These self-lubricating products will serve to increase equipment longevity and performance in many industries, including automotive, aerospace and other industrial applications.
At the forefront of advancing polymer coating technologies, this new product line helps to improve performance through reduced friction, increased wear life, reduced system noise and improved corrosion resistance, all while reducing system costs. Coatings can also be applied to nearly any surface, regardless of shape and material.
“Moving beyond being just a bearing producer to becoming a true innovation partner and solution provider for our customers has solidified our vision for the future, and TriboShield® is a true manifestation of that,” said Derek Marsella, Coatings Business Unit Leader for GGB. “With its endless possibilities and benefits, we can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together with our customers. The fact that we are able to formulate our own proprietary coatings and supply coated components in low- and high-volume series production under one roof is sure to make our customers' lives easier.”
This new line of tribo-coatings includes seven standard formulations that cover the full spectrum of mechanical, thermal, tribological and chemical capabilities offered by today’s polymer materials. The versatility of TriboShield® is virtually endless with GGB’s experienced scientists and in-house ability to formulate and customize our coatings to the specific needs of the customer’s applications.
