Why Material Selection Matters for Bearings and Beyond
Bearings and similar components often have serious implications for the performance and...
Need a bearing that delivers longer wear to improve equipment uptime? Plastic bearings routinely outperform metal and bronze when it comes to longevity and bearing wear properties. In fact, some heavy-duty materials such as Rulon® tape have a wear resistance that is 500x the industry standard.
Tribology tests confirm that low-friction plastic materials excel in industrial applications over oil-impregnated bronze materials. Let us show you the power of self-lubricating plastic bearings.
