Fiberglide® - Fabroid® Comparison
The graphs below
are typical wear curves for two types of self-lubricating liner materials;
Standard FIBERGLIDE® A, and FABROID® G. The standard FIBERGLIDE® A material
is suitable for most applications and significantly outperforms other
bearing types. But, should your application include extraordinarily
high static and/or dynamic loads, extremes of temperature, or chemical
resistance requirements, Transport Dynamics manufactures a variety of
liner materials and backing for critical service applications. There
are two types of FIBERGLIDE® liners depending on the product configuration
and three types of FABROID®.
is the originator, innovator and leader in self-lubricating bearing
technology with over thirty years of material development and application
experience. The original Fabroid® Liner System was patented in 1958.
Evolution in the development of materials has created three generations
of self-lubrication liner technology.
represent a significant advance in technology and their increased capabilities
offer solutions in applications previously judged to be borderline or
beyond material capability. Contact Transport Dynamics Engineering Department

FOR LOW SPEED OSCILLATING
CONDITIONS - static loads over 30,000 psi or dynamic loads over 20,000
psi require metal backing of high strength stainless steel or equivalent
