Key Features


  • PTFE based according to ISO 3547 type P1
  • Negligible stick-slip effect
  • 250 MPa maximum static load

Many applications require a combination of good friction properties, a high wear resistance and a high load capacity at the same time.

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 and wear reducing additives. A 5 to 30 µm top layer made of the same material forms the running-in layer.

GLYCODUR® F sliding bearings combine in optimal manner 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.
