• Rulon AR

    Rulon® AR Bearings | High Physical properties

Rulon AR is a derivative of the original Rulon A material, and continues the tradition of chemical resistance and long wear, plus reliability for continuous, non-lubricated service. Maroon in color, Rulon AR is ideal for seals and the bonded coatings of slide surfaces. You’ll find AR in many automotive applications such as shaft seals and piston cups for gas meters, or anywhere where high physical properties are in demand.

With a PV value of up to 10,000, (higher for intermittent use), Rulon AR can be designed to extruded shapes, molded parts, and machined parts.
