Fiber reinforced composite

Filament Wound Bearings

This range of fiber reinforced composite products typically consists of a filament-wound, fiberglass-impregnated, epoxy backing with a variety of low-friction wear-resistant bearing linings.

GGB | Fiber Reinforced Composite Materials

To meet the need for high load, self-lubricating bearings that provide low wear rates, we developed our line of Fiber Reinforced Composite bearings. Combining the excellent lubricating properties of filled PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) with the high strength and stability of epoxy-impregnated, wound glass fibers, this tough, high strength line of bearings provide the radial and axial strength required to support high bearing loads.

Experience the Advantage


High Load Capacity

High Load Capacity

The reinforced composite structure enables the bearing to support high static and dynamic loads


Corrosion Resistant

Corrosion Resistant

The inert nature of the filament wound materials makes these products ideal for corrosive environments such as seawater and acidic environments.


Excellent Shock and Edge Loading Capacity

Excellent Shock and Edge Loading Capacity

Feature exceptional chemical and corrosion protection, offering a barrier of inert material between surfaces to extend longevity.


Dimensionally Stable

Dimensionally Stable

Very low water absorption, low swelling
