FILAMENT WOUND BEARINGS
GAR-FIL®, GAR-MAX®, HSG, MULTIFIL, MLG, HPM, HPF®, HPMB®, GGB-MEGALIFE™ XT, SBC
This range of fiber reinforced composite 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 HPMB®, HPM, HPF®, MLG, SBC, GAR-MAX®, GAR-FIL®, HSG and GGB-MEGALIFE™ XT enables the bearing to support high static and dynamic loads. Furthermore, the inert nature of the filament wound materials makes these products ideal for corrosive environments such as seawater and acidic environments.
The environmentally friendly HPM, HPF® and HPMB® fiber reinforced composite bearings 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 fiber reinforced composite bearings are available as bushes, plates, bearing segments and special forms depending on the particular material type.
is a self-lubricating bearing material that consists of a high-quality bearing bronze with pockets filled with solid lubricant and a thin film of solid lubricant over the bearing surface to aid the running-in process.
is a high performance self-lubricating sliding material with a glass fiber reinforced carrying layer. The machinable sliding layer consists of fibers which are embedded in epoxy resin. The resin carries PTFE as lubricant for excellent tribological performance.
