Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics

Saint-Gobain offers high-quality SOLGLIDE composite bearings for CSP plants. These are applied at pivot points of tracking systems to increase long-term operational efficiency, reduce energy usage, and decrease operational costs. Saint-Gobain’s SOLGLIDE composite bearings have a self-lubricating liner of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), and offer exceptional corrosion- and wear-resistance, lasting for the lifetime of a CSP tower—usually around 25 years, with no maintenance costs.
