Plastic Bearings and Coefficient of Friction

We all realize that friction generates heat, and heat can be problematic for plastic plane bearings. So how can you choose the right plastic bearing material for a high-friction environment?  Which materials will give you the longest wear? Our video below reviews key design considerations such as temperature, load, and speed, plus surface finish, hardness and more.
