Tribological characteristics

Our slide bearing materials provide mechanical engineering and plant manufacturing designers with many application possibilities for sliding solutions in extreme operating conditions – thus, ensuring high reliability and freedom from maintenance problems.

Through modifications for special purposes, a broad variety of slide bearing concepts can be realized with these self-lubricating high performance materials. This applies in particular for low speed systems.

The latest inspection technology ensures precise knowledge and selection of tribological characteristics such as our materials’ wearing rates, coefficients of friction and temperature changes. By means of this technique, a simulation of highly diverse operating conditions is possible.

Due to the assortment of respective additives, an adjustability to specific coefficients of friction makes these synthetic materials suitable for clutch and break applications.
