Germany – Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics has launched its innovative NORGLIDE® composite bearings solutions for hydraulic pump technology in heavy-duty vehicles. The company has been developing low-friction, wear-resistant NORGLIDE® composite bearings to help manufacturers in the US minimise 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, such as China. Self-lubricating and wear-resistant, Saint-Gobain’s technology ensures friction control within pump applications throughout the long life of the mechanism. NORGLIDE® composite bearings also help European manufacturers comply with carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions standards, such as the European Union’s (EU) Stage IIIB by helping to reduce fuel consumption during pump operation.
