Rulon® 142 │ For Linear Bearings & Slides

Rulon 142

When you have a need for exceptional vibration resistance, superior mechanical strength, and good dimensional stability, consider the versatile Rulon 142.

This low-deformation compound exceeds most materials in preventing catastrophic failures on machine tool guideways. It is also our most cost-effective linear bearing material.

Other key characteristics of the aqua-colored Rulon 142 are virtual elimination of stick/slip, uniform friction, high thermal dissipation, and good stability. And like all variations of Rulon, Rulon 142 delivers long wear, self-lubrication, and design diversity.
