Wolf Kunststoff-Gleitlager GmbH


Over 50 years of experience in the development & manufacturing of high-performance polymers with targeted properties and their implementation in practical applications as suitable, best fitting sliding and wear parts of the quality brand name ZEDEX®.

This also includes consulting, compound testing, calculations & design as well as prototype and volume production. If the suitable material is not available in our range, we can develop it to measure or even modify an existing material to optimise it for your application.

We have been carrying out tribological, mechanical and thermal tests in our in-house laboratory since 1972, of our materials and of competitive products in order to best advise our customers. In the case of problems with previous materials, we also support you from problem analysis to the solution.

Our products are available either as granules, 3D filament, semi-finished product or as a problem-free injection moulded, 3D printed or machined finished part. From prototype to volume production.

Industry expertise

Discover some of the many industries, in which our ZEDEX® high-performance polymers have added value

ZEDEX® Material families

The ZEDEX® materials are grouped in families with the same material base.
For each basic type are specially modified types available.

ZEDEX® 100 Family

The "little PEEK" - up to 110 °C

ZX-100® is an "all-round polymer family" with excellent tribological properties & self-lubrication. The modification ZX-100K® is both rigid and elastic at the same time.

It is very suitable, e.g. as a replacement for ordinary bronze and PA.

ZEDEX® 200 Family

High elasticity and low creep
- up to 140 °C.

The ZX-200® family is based on PK and has a chemical resistance comparable to PEEK.

ZX-200® has excellent elasticity and its thermal and mechanical properties are better than conventional PA and POM.

ZEDEX® 324 Family

Like PEEK only better - up to 250 °C

ZX-324® family is suitable for high temperatures in combination with high surface pressure.

ZX-324® is 100% virgin PEEK, but has a higher TG and ductility than conventional PEEK.

ZEDEX® 410 Family

The most precise - up to 180 °C

ZX-410® is suitable for the medium sliding speed range, high surface pressure and high precision even at high temperatures.

Also suitable to replace bronze / sintered bronze and aluminum taking into account the required strength.

ZEDEX® 530 Family

Super PTFE compound - up to 240 °C

ZX-530® family is particularly suitable for applications in which aggressive chemicals are used.

ZX-530® combines the advantages of PTFE and ceramic.

ZEDEX® 750 Family

Cryogenics, high temperature and high PV - up to 280 °C

ZX-750® family is suitable for very high temperatures, combined with high PV values. Due to its low brittle point, it is also well suited for cryogenic applications.

Also suitable to replace PI considering the long-term temperature.
