Product Portfolio
  • Products

    • Metal-Polymer Materials

    • 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.
    • Bushing Blocks

    • 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.
    • Metal Materials

    • 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 operating conditions.
    • Bearing Housing

    • 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.
