Engineers at Glebus Alloys have developed G-METAL TM, a material for use in demanding industrial environments. This technology greatly surpasses conventional products used in the hydropower industry.

G-METAL TM material contains the maintenance free benefits of self lubricating sintered bronze/graphite. The concentrated micro dispersion of the graphite throughout the metallic matrix ensures consistent lubricating properties over the entire wear area of the part.

A variety of alloys can be formed with G-METAL TM material. Bronze, nickel, iron, iron/nickel and lead can be produced with the lubricants graphite or graphite and molybdenum.

The material can be formed into many shapes and sizes including wear plates, rolled bushings, cylindrical bearings, spherical bearings, split bearings, sleeves, liners, guides and other customizable shapes.
