Its complex composition--steel plate, structured bronze layer with encapsulated PTFE sliding layer -- its load-bearing capability is almost twice as much as other NORGLIDE® bearings.

NORGLIDE® PRO is a steel material with a polygon-structured bronze layer on one side.  Encapsulated in the polygon structure is a sliding layer of compounded PTFE tape.  This design provides much higher load-carrying capabilities.

The material is capable for sizing and can be adapted to any clearance required for the specific application.  The whole range of NORGLIDE® PRO  thicknesses can be designed with a press fit in the housing.  


PTFE compounds are available with carbon or EKONOL®. Fabricated parts include rolled bearings with or without an axial flange, deep-drawn bearings and die-cuts.
