        •®/9P is a self-lubricating bi-metal sliding material. The sliding layer is applied to the stainless steel back in a combined rolling/sintering process.

          The lubricant in®/9P is microscopically distributed PTFE which leads to significantly reduced friction and wear figures.

®/9P is the optimum material for p>25 N/mm² and has its best performance at slow speeds and intermittent service.

            •® - marginal maintenance

            •® bearings are thin-walled, rolled CuSn8 parts provided with depots for use with lubricants. They feature high-load capacity enabling compact, high-performing, low-maintenance bearing locations.

              There are three basic variants:

    ® 9 as variant with rolled-in diamond-shaped lubrication recesses. This type is primarily designed to cope with cases where surrounding construction elements such as gear wheels are oil lubricated. Equally suitable are commercially available, pumpable greases or pastes.

              Like® 9,® 8 also has lubrication recesses. However, these are filled with a solid lubricant, thus permitting operation without additional lubrication.

              If greater demands are made on grease supply,® 7 with end-to-end lubrication holes would be the type to use. This variant is less suitable for oil lubrication due to its design.

              Agricultural machinery, hydraulic systems, bearings for impact loading and shock stress applications, construction machinery, bearings used in handling and conveyor technology and many more.

              • GLYCODUR® F - maintenance-free

              • GLYCODUR F slide bearings have a copper-plated steel backing and a porous 0.2 to 0.4 mm thick, sintered-on layer of tin bronze. In the rolling process, the pores of this layer are filled with polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) mixed with friction and wear-reducing additives. A 5 to 30 µm thick coating layer from the same material forms the running-in layer.

                The good mechanical properties of the sintered bronze along with the good sliding and lubricating properties of a PTFE mixture are optimally combined in the case of the GLYCODUR F slide bearings. The material composition ensures good dimensional stability and thermal conductivity.


                Generally for dry-running applications, shock absorbers, hydraulic applications, pneumatic cylinders, medical equipments, textile machines, agricultural applications , as well as in the office sector, etc.

                • GLYCODUR® A/AB - marginal maintenance

                • GLYCODUR A slide bearings have a copper-plated steel backing and a 0.2 to 0.4 mm thick, sintered-on layer of tin bronze. The key feature of these bearings is the coating polyoxymethylene (POM) layer with its relative thickness of 0.3 mm with lubrication recesses for lubricating grease.

                  GLYCODUR A slide bearings are therefore insensitive to misalignment and associated edge loading to a certain extent.

                  The GLYCODUR AB slide bearings correspond to GLYCODUR A slide bearings by design, however their POM coating layer is 0.35 mm thick. This allows subsequent machining of the slide surface by drilling or turning already fitted bushes - also by reaming in special cases. This allows to eliminate misalignments or obtain a reduced bearing clearance.

                  All applications working in the mixed friction area using grease and oil lubrication such as on slowly rotating transmissions or adjustment movements.
