- Offer Profile
- GGB is proud to be the
world's largest manufacturer of metal-polymer plain bearings. More than
50,000 customers worldwide use products from our full line of
self-lubricated, marginally lubricated and fully lubricated plain bearings.
Our products are available in a variety of forms such as cylindrical wrapped
bushes, flanged bushes, thrust washers, or as special parts manufactured to
customer requirements. Whatever your project requires, our experts will work
with you to find the perfect bearings solution.
- GGB’s PTFE based metal-polymer materials offer excellent
low friction performance and high wear resistance in a wide range of loads,
speeds and temperatures; with or without external lubrication. These
materials are used extensively in a diverse range of industrial and
automotive applications. The GGB metal-polymer product range includes DU®,
DU®B, DP4™, DP4B™, DP10™, DP11™, DP31™, DX®, DX10®, DS™ and HX™.
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.
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.
- High precision bushing blocks made from GGB proprietary
aluminium alloys (SICAL 3™, SICAL 3D™ and SICAL 6D™) with very good friction
and wear resistance supplied with our without pre-installed GGB
metal-polymer cylindrical bearings.
- We have a broad range of monometallic, bimetallic, sinter
bronze bearings and our DB™ bearings, which are ideal for industrial
applications on both land and underwater. Our range of impregnated solid
bronze bearings is intended for use in maintenance-free operations, under
moderately high speeds and low loads. Designed for lubricated conditions ,
our mono- and bimetallic bearings are suitable for use in a wide range of
- Additional product families to complement the above GGB
product portfolio, e.g. specialized housings and assemblies. UNI™, MINI™,
and EXALIGN™ self-aligning bearing housings are designed to be used with our
range of metal polymer bearings.
