Rulon Plane Bearings

Rulon® Plane Bearings | High Temp - Self Lubricating

Rulon bearings outperform metal materials, and are ideal for non-lubricated, high-load applications in punishing environments. Rulon bearings are heavy-duty, rust-resistant, long-wearing, and cost-efficient.

When your application calls for Rulon – you should call TriStar. With the largest US inventory and multiple distribution centers, we have what you need, when you need it. Our Rulon Bearing Selector Guide, will help you match the right composite bearing material to the job.
