GLIDE materials are an excellent choice for many marine applications. Critical features when looking for the correct bearing that can withstand the demands of submerged working environments usually start with no water swell, high compression strength and abrasion resistance.

Additional material benefits for Marine:

  • Internally lubricated
  • No stress relief when machining
  • Excellent wear properties
  • Easily installed (press or freeze fit)
  • Easily serviced / No electrolytic corrosion
  • Shaft friendly
  • Unlimited sizing combinations
  • No need to grease
  • “Green materials" (environmentally friendly)

Marine application examples:

  • Stern tubes
  • Rudder bearings / sleeves
  • Winch bushings
  • Cranes
  • Hatch covers
  • Stern Rollers
  • Glide Dripless Stuffing Box
  • Thru hull fittings
  • Seat slide bushings
  • Steering assembly bushings
  • Upper rudder support bearings
  • Dredge – bucket jaw bushings
  • Spherical rudder bearings (Bavaria yachts)
