The name Permaglide®, a registered trademark of KS Gleitlager, embodies the product characteristic of permanently low-wear gliding. The use of solid lubricants in the plastic matrix makes it possible to use KS PERMAGLIDE® plain bearings from material group P1 (maintenance-free materials) without oil or grease lubrication.
It is not always possible to carry out plain bearing application tasks using products made from maintenance-free material. In these cases, low-maintenance P2 materials are the perfect solution.
KS PERMAGLIDE® plain bearings are available as bushes, collar bushes, washers, strips or other designs.
