The new engineered plastics tribological material adds to their tribological range of products
New material broadens the range of GGB’s engineered plastics products to better meet customer needs.
Provides the ideal combination of performance and price for certain applications, such as water pumps, pulley dampers, automotive interiors and hydrodynamic applications, among others.
Made-to-order in a wide range of standard and custom shapes.
GGB announces the development of EP30, the newest addition to their light-weight engineered plastics product range. EP30 tribolological material is made-to-order in a wide range of standard and custom shapes, and provide good to very good dry and lubricated performance in applications as diverse as office and sports equipment, automobiles, domestic appliances and chemical-processing equipment.
More specifically, EP30 extends the current engineered plastics product range in terms of improved temperature resistance and damping effect to reduce noise. It provides the ideal combination of performance and price for certain applications, such as water pumps both in automotive and industrial applications, pulley dampers, automotive interiors, seat sliders and hydrodynamic applications.
EP30 also offers the following characteristics:
Good bushing performance in dry working conditions
Good bushing performance in lubricated or marginally lubricated applications
Corrosion resistance in humid and saline environments
Good price and weight performance ratio
Good performance in elasto-hydrodynamic applications
Unlimited dimensions and design features within injection-molding tool
Compliance with EVL, WEEE and RoHS specifications
“We are very pleased to add the EP30 tribological material to our portfolio, as we recognize the importance of creating materials to satisfy the increasing performance demands of our customers´applications,” said Paul Pathikal, VP of Strategy and Marketing. “To be a thought leader in the industry, we must actively develop new ideas by listening to our customers and identifying their needs.”
