Sliding Bearings Which Are Electrically Conductive

In GBT we have in-depth knowledge of the complexity of the automotive market based on many years of experience dealing with this market and through our continuous Research & Development we have managed to successfully develop materials that meet the ROHS environmental regulations, are maintenance free and can be used in the rising demand for electrical conductivity.

Requirement fulfilled through electrically conductive sliding bearing materials:

To start electro coating processes, all the components of the assembly should be electrically conductive. If the components are nonconductive it will act as an insulator and an electro coating process is not possible. However, GBT Sliding bearings consist of a combination of a special structure, a nomenclature and of a composition resulting in being electrically conductive. Furthermore, it enhances and accelerates the process in a way that painting particles will get attract and will get deposited in the car body evenly, resulting into forming a continuous film over every surface until the coating reaches the desired thickness.

Advantages of GBT sliding bearings:

  •  Electrically Conductive
  • Maintenance free
  • Low wear properties
  • Plastic material does not require any additional corrosion protection
  • Wide working temperature range
  • Almost no stick-slip effect
  • Constantly low friction value
  • Negligible water absorption
