GLYCODUR® A bearings can be used in the temperature range from -40 to +110 °C (-40 to +230 °F); temperatures up to +130 °C (+266 °F) are also permissible for a short period.
GLYCODUR® F bearings cover a much larger temperature range between -200 to +250 °C (-328 to +482 °F). This large range results from the special material combination used for the sliding layer with its excellent heat conductivity.
Temperature Factor c3
Beginning with a certain limit value of the operating temperature, the service life of GLYCODUR® A and GLYCODUR® F bearings will be substantially reduced. This is allowed for in the calculation by a temperature factor c3.
