Bearings

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
