Gharda Plastics: High performance friction and wear polymeric materials


Gharda Plastics, the high performance engineering polymers business of Gharda Chemicals, has launched a speciality lubricating solution for industrial and business appliances, incorporating various reinforcements in G-PAEK and Gazole grades; this collaborative development with other industrial partners is aimed at applications that require high wear resistance. The G-PAEK product family is based on polyetherketone (PEK) and Gazole represents newly commercialised thermoplastic alloys of PEK and polybenzimidazole (PBI). The two featured wear grades, G-PAEK 1230FCT and Gazole 6430FCT are easy flow for injection moulding of intricate multi-cavity parts. The heat deflection temperature of 350°C to 360°C makes them suitable for demanding high heat resistance applications.

The high fatigue strength and wear resistance make FCT grades suitable for automotive/transportation segment for gears, bearings and bushes. (photo: Gharda)
