Solid Polymer Materials

Thermoplastic materials processed by injection moulding. The engineering polymers include PA-based EP™, POM-based EP12™, PBT-based EP22™, PPS-based EP43™ and EP44™, PEEK-based EP63™ and EP64™, and PAI-based EP73™ and EP79™. EP, EP22, EP43 and EP63 are available in standard cylindrical and flanged bearings, as well as special dimensions and shapes. EP22 and EP43 are available as rod stock for prototypes and small serial production. All of the other EP materials are available by special order. Also offered are POM-based Glacetal KA™ and Multilube® engineering thermoplastics.

Filament Wound Materials

This range of 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 GAR-MAX®, GAR-FIL™, High Strength GAR-MAX®, MEGALIFE®XT and SBC™ enables the bearing to support high static and dynamic loads. Furthermore, the inert nature of the materials makes these products ideal for corrosive environments such as seawater and acidic environments. The environmentally friendly HPM™ and HPF™ 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 products are available as bushes, plates, bearing segments and special forms depending on the particular material type.

Metal Polymer Bearings

Our metal-backed, PTFE-based (polytetrafluoroethylene) polymer bearing materials have a common structure, consisting of a metal backing bonded to a porous bronze sinter layer. This bronze sinter layer is impregnated and overlaid with the filled PTFE bearing lining.

The metal backing provides mechanical strength, while the bronze sinter layer provides a strong mechanical bond between the backing and the bearing lining. This construction promotes dimensional stability and improves thermal conductivity.

These polymer bearing linings, being predominantly PTFE, offer exceptionally low friction.

Plain Bearings

This range of 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 GAR-MAX®, GAR-FIL®, HSGTM and MEGALIFE®XT enables the bearing to support high static and dynamic loads. Furthermore, the inert nature of the materials makes these products ideal for corrosive environments such as seawater and acidic environments. The environmentally friendly HPM™ and HPF™ 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.
