Blue dyed semi-finished products – perfectly suited for food processing


Sliding-modified material with excellent emergency running properties


In the group of sliding-modified materials we have included GLIDE-GEHR POM-10PE-X®, a new material in which the tribological behaviour (friction) has been optimized by incorporating solid lubricants. Thanks to these solid lubricants, we achieve a high wear resistance, a low coefficient of friction and thus a good dry running capability.

In addition to the standard features, these plastic materials also have excellent emergency running properties, good damping properties as well as optimized chemical resistance and oxidative stability.

Their abrasion behaviour is also positively influenced by the firmly integrated PTFE additive, which is not harmful to health. When machining the previously annealed semi-finished products, thermal overload (plastics are generally poor heat conductors) must be avoided, as otherwise an uneven or scaly surface could form. Due to the incorporated solid lubricant particles, the production of very small surface roughness qualities is only possible to a limited extent.

In joining technology, not only hot plate welding but also adhesive bonding with pressure-sensitive adhesives has proven successful, as the high chemical stability includes resistance to most solvent adhesives. The activation of the surfaces (corona treatment, primer application or etching) enhances the achievable strength. The material is used, for example, in sliding bearings, valve and tap parts. Currently we have rods with a diameter of 20 – 50 mm as well as sheets with a thickness of 10, 15 and 20 mm in the colour medium blue available in stock.

In the future, we will bring together all semi-finished products, the tribological behaviour (friction) of which has been optimized by incorporating solid lubricants, in the GLIDE-GEHR® product group. In order to emphasise this property, we will then also label these products with the product designation GLIDE-GEHR®. We will continue to expand this product family.

Currently, we have the following tribological semi-finished products in stock:

GEHR PEEK® Coil Body

 The right material for electronic and electrical engineering applications

Electronic or electrical engineering applications most frequently require coil bodies 

GEHR PEEK® optimized


Thanks to further process optimisations, we further enhanced our PEEK semi-finished products.


Material to meet highest demands

Our semi-finished products, such as round rods, sheets and hollow bars, made of GEHR PEEK® stand out for their low-stress property, their straightness and homogeneity. Over the last few months, we succeeded in significantly reducing the core filament of the semi-finished products. This will be of particular benefit to operators producing optical components in terms of design.

New dimensions on stock


We have expanded our extruded plastic semi-finished products portfolio with the addition of UHMWPE in sizes ¾” - 8” (Color-Natural) GEHR UHMWPE has a high abrasion resistance (very good glide characteristics) and a high toughness at the same time. The chemical and crack resistance are optimum in comparison to the standard PE-HD. The operating temperature of UHMWPE ranges from -238 F to +194 F. The product is stocked in 10’ lengths from ¾” – 4” and 5’ lengths from 4 ¼” – 8”.

Round Rods and Sheets now available

We have expanded our stocking program and now have the following dimensions available in stock:

Round rods: diameter: 6 – 150 mm / 0,2 – 6” (color: natural and black) Sheets: thickness: 10 – 50 mm / 0,4 – 2,0” (color: natural) The material is produced in metric sizes.

Plastic filaments for professional 3D printing

We have expanded our extruded plastic semi-finished products portfolio. As of now we offer plastic filaments for professional 3D printing under the brand name FIL-A-GEHR.  The filaments are produced in Mannheim from high-quality raw materials and with close tolerances. As of now we have available in stock the following materials: FIL-A-GEHR ABS FIL-A-GEHR PLA FIL-A-GEHR PC/ABS FIL-A-GEHR PPA FIL-A-GEHR PA12 FIL-A-GEHR PEEK They are available in diameters of 1.75 mm / 0,05” and 2.85 mm / 0,11” – both in 1 kg / ~2,2 lbs coils or 2.3 kg / ~5,1 lbs coils – and in many different colors.

GEHR sets new standards in acetal extrusion again! We would like to formally announce the addition of 24“ diameter, natural 
Acetal rods to our stocking program. Standard length will be 39“ (1 meter) 
But if needed we can cut to custom length where required.
