New ! Tribological Coatings

GGB extends its wealth of expertise to lead polymer coatings into the field of tribology to fully embrace the performance benefits that this technology has to offer. Self-lubricating GGB polymer coatings are specially formulated to deliver a wide array of benefits such as low friction, and resistance to wear, corrosion and chemicals. GGB TriboShield® polymer coatings bring performance improvements through better friction management in complex sliding surfaces where traditional bearings cannot operate, leading to energy savings, simpler designs and lower system costs.

Bearing Products

Metal-Polymer Bearings

GGB’s metal-backed PTFE based polymer bearings offer excellent low friction and high wear resistance performance. The metal-polymer bearings promote dimensional stability and offers improved thermal conductivity.

Engineered Plastics Bearings

GGB’s Engineered plastics are a thermoplastic bearing material processed by injection moulding that offers excellent wear resistance and low friction for applications with both lubricated and dry operating conditions.

Fiber Reinforced Composite Bearings

Our fiber reinforced composite products consists of filament-wound, fiberglass-impregnated and epoxy backing offers a range of low friction wear resistant bearing linings to enable them to support high static and dynamic loads.

Metals and Bimetals
