The Magic of Paired Performance
We know there is no “one-size-fits-all" approach to efficiency. That’s why we offer TriboMate® paired solutions, the tribological answer that helps you reach the next generation of system performance. A customized range of coatings that work with other polymer surfaces, TriboMate® assists in overcoming challenges such as:
Fretting Wear Resistance
GGB's polymer coatings provide intrinsic solid lubrication, making it ideal for eliminating vibratory wear. Our TriboMate® paired coatings are designed to interact with GGB's conventional polymer-based bearing materials as well as our TriboShield® solutions, all leading to a significant extension of service life—even in the most demanding conditions.
Self Lubrication Solution
Incorporate solid lubricants to deliver self-lubricity that can help reduce and sometimes eliminate the need for additional lubrication in machine parts and reduce reliance on third-party oils or greases.
Part and Component Reduction
TriboMate® provides tailored friction levels for many complex-shaped surfaces that traditional cylindrical bearings alone cannot access, allowing for a more simplistic design that employs fewer parts and easier assembly—and fewer part failures.
When it comes to corrosion resistance, TriboMate® can significantly increase chemical resistance for longer wear life, offering a barrier of inert material between surfaces to extend longevity.
TriboMate® can be seamlessly paired with other TriboShield® polymer coatings, as well as GGB tribological plain bearing solutions including our Engineered Plastics bearings, thermoplastic-based Metal-Polymer products (DX®, DX®10, HI-EX®, DS, DTS10®) and our GAR-FIL bearings.
Hard Chrome Replacement
With high toxicity levels, high costs, and more bans likely coming in the next decade —chemical hard chrome plating is becoming a thing of the past. The environmentally conscious way of the future is TriboMate® paired coatings. Contact your local Application Engineer for additional information.
