Engineered Plastics

Performance in All Shapes

The more demanding specifications of today’s high-performance equipment and systems require bearings that can reliably operate under extreme conditions with minimal maintenance and lower operating costs. 

Through unparalleled research and development, and worldwide engineering support, our EP materials offer a nearly limitless variety of configurations and styles, and a wide range of applications, because of our diversity of raw materials made of resins compounded with reinforcing fibers and solid lubricant.

GGB's Engineered Plastic Bearing Materials
GGB | Engineered Plastic Materials

Created out of thermoplastic bearing material and processed by injection molding, our series of Engineered Plastics bearings provide excellent wear resistance and low friction in both dry and lubricated operating conditions. In addition to their high shock-load resistance and noise-dampening properties, our Engineered Plastics provide environmentally friendly, grease-free operation—helping minimize the need for maintenance.
