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. The reinforced composite structure associated with HPMB®, HPM, HPF®, MLG, SBC, GAR-MAX®, GAR-FIL®, HSG and GGB-MEGALIFE™ XT enables the bearing to support high static and dynamic loads. Furthermore, the inert nature of the filament wound materials makes these products ideal for corrosive environments such as seawater and acidic environments.
The environmentally friendly HPM, HPF® and HPMB® fiber reinforced composite bearings were both specifically developed for hydropower applications, have a high load capacity, excellent shock and edge loading capacity, excellent corrosion resistance, and are dimensionally stable. These fiber reinforced composite bearings are available as bushes, plates, bearing segments and special forms depending on the particular material type.
