Where to use Glycodur® F
GLYCODUR F slide bearings have a copper-plated steel backing and a porous 0.2 to 0.4 mm thick, sintered-on layer of tin bronze. In the rolling process, the pores of this layer are filled with polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) mixed with friction and wear-reducing additives. A 5 to 30 µm thick coating layer from the same material forms the running-in layer.
The good mechanical properties of the sintered bronze along with the good sliding and lubricating properties of a PTFE mixture are optimally combined in the case of the GLYCODUR F slide bearings. The material composition ensures good dimensional stability and thermal conductivity.
Generally for dry-running applications, shock absorbers, hydraulic applications, pneumatic cylinders, medical equipments, textile machines, agricultural applications , as well as in the office sector, etc.
