Why Material Selection Matters for Bearings and Beyond
Bearings and similar components often have serious implications for the performance and...
Need to improve bearing efficiency? Look to maintenance-free plastic composite bearings for durable, efficient service in tough industrial applications.
Unlike metals, plastic bearings are self-lubricating, so there is no added expense for lubrication or maintenance. Longer service life means your bearings may even last longer than your equipment. And a tough design of high-quality materials resists extreme vibration, temperatures and corrosion for better performance in the field.
When it’s time to source bearing materials, look beyond initial unit cost and to examine total cost of lifetime ownership. Composite bearings are the clear winner.
