GLIDE materials are widely used in many pumping and hydro
applications. With internal lubrication compounded into all of our materials, we have excellent dry-run capacity in vertical and turbine lift pumps. Our high temperature and abrasion resistant materials also have extraordinary success in very demanding applications that can handle working temperatures over 450°F


Looking for a custom-fit product? We manufacture and stock “standard size” marine bearings, as well as customer-specific sizes to meet their needs. Metric and Imperial combination sized parts are no problems. From 1 part to 10,000 pieces we welcome all inquiry’s. Please contact us for more information.
