TriboShield® Polymer Coatings

The Future of Polymer Coatings Solutions Starts Here

Although polymer coating technologies have been widely employed in corrosion protection of component surfaces and other applications, recent advances that deliver improved tribological properties are creating opportunities to meet these challenges and help revolutionize component design and manufacturing. 

The Freedom to Innovate


At GGB, we aren’t afraid to take risks for our customers and take pride in working closely with customers in the early stage of a design to think broadly and boldly—to expand beyond traditional surface engineered solutions. Offering partnerships based on trust, compassion, determination, collaboration and respect, we work to push the boundaries of possibility, inspiring customers across all markets to partner and innovate alongside us. 

In any project, considering tribological requirements as early as possible in the system design process is critical to ensuring optimal performance. This allows you to take full advantage of part shape to minimize the number of components and maximize service life. We employ a global team of application engineering specialists and materials scientists that can assist in the early stages of the product design to identify ways for the right tribological solution to yield size, weight, efficiency and performance enhancements in the final assembly. 

Beyond Bearings: Enhancing Performance with Polymer Coatings

In many industries, complex shapes and surfaces create material challenges for engineers looking to increase performance of their systems while reducing friction and slowing wear for the long haul. What if there was a solution offering freedom of geometry for sliding surfaces?
