 Composition - Characteristics

Sliding bearing material

Composition GLYCODUR® F

GLYCODUR F sliding bearings have a steel base, to which a 0.2 to 0.4 mm porous tin bronze layer is sintered. The pores of this layer are filled during a rolling process with polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and other friction reducing additives. A 5 to 30 µm top layer made of the same material forms the running-in layer.

GLYCODUR F sliding bearings combine optimally the mechanical properties of the sintered bronze with the sliding and lubrication properties of a PTFE mixture. The structure of this composite material results in good dimensional stability and good thermal conductivity.
