Lead-free and custom designed plain bearings
Renowned for their continuous, low wear sliding characteristics, the Schaeffler Group's Permaglide range of plain bearings is celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year. Permaglide plain bearings offer low wear sliding characteristics, high load carrying capacities and heat dissipation properties that are normally associated with metals. The bearings are maintenance-free and so are ideal for special automotive and general industrial applications.

Permaglide bearings have a porous bronze-sintered structure, applied to a steel or bronze backing, impregnated with the appropriate polymer-mix. This solid lubricant produces a film between the sliding surfaces, which provides low-noise operation at constant speeds and low coefficients of friction throughout the entire service life of the bearing. The bearings are a low cost alternative for applications with comparatively low surface loads and where space is restricted.
