Rolling contacts in bearings and gears are typically subjest to high contact loads. Certain coatings in the Tribobond™ family are specifically designed to help reduce rolling contact fatigue, one of the failure modes in such contacts. Specialty Tribobond™ films help minimize the adverse effects of contact fatigue and increase the load-carrying capacity. In addition, these films decrease friction in poor lubrication conditions, thus increasing transmission efficiency.
Among the most common applications are:
- Rolling elements of roller bearings
- Cages, raceways and balls of ball bearings
- Gliding surfaces of precision gears: spur, worm, helical, rack and pinion, bevel
- Elements of linear drives
