Silicon Carbide Bearings

Silicon Carbide Bearings

Our media-lubricated silicon carbide slide bearings are characterized by their very high thermal resistance with extremely minimal heat expansion and their extreme hardness. Friction and wear are thus very low, even non-existent, when hydrodynamic lubrication is achieved. This is why the materials also work in harsh environments.

You benefit from these advantages:

  • Material individually matched to your needs
  • Silicon-infiltrated silicon carbide (SiSiC) and sintered silicon carbide (SSiC) possible
  • Extremely high resistance to friction and wear
  • Outstanding thermal conductivity
  • Very lightweight
  • Extremely high corrosion resistance with no material fatigue
  • Materials compliant with FDA and WRAS
  • Metal or rubber housing possible
