NORGLIDE® Composite Bearings
Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics (Aurora, OH) has launched its innovative NORGLIDE® composite bearings solutions for hydraulic pump technology in heavy-duty vehicles throughout Europe and Asia. The company has been developing low-friction, wear-resistant NORGLIDE® composite bearings to help manufacturers minimize maintenance requirements for their pump technology for many years and is now extending its offering to the UK and Germany as well as Asian markets. Self-lubricating and wear-resistant, Saint-Gobain’s technology ensures friction control within pump applications throughout the long life of the mechanism, says the company. NORGLIDE® composite bearings also help European manufacturers comply with carbon dioxide emissions standards, such as the European Union’s Stage IIIB by helping to reduce fuel consumption during pump operation.
