Durable polymer alloys capable of performing better than brass, bronze or babbitt!

  • Self Lubricating
  • Excellent for impact and shock application
  • Exceptional wear life and resistance to corrosion
  • Low temperature resistance to -80°F

When it comes to using plastics for various applications, it may become difficult to determine which material to use, especially with bearings and bushings. Below is a quick overview as to which plastic type is best suited for certain environments.

PLEASE NOTE: Plastic Clearance/Tolerance is subject to many variables (i.e. Moisture, Cold Heat) when being machined for specific applications. If lubrication is supplied to a plastic bearing, the load and life are greatly increased dependent on the type and volume of lubricant.
