Bearings • Plastic Bearings

There are a number of plain bearings that are comprised of various plastics including nylon, PEEK blend, polyacetal, PTFE, glass-filled PTFE, Rulon, UHMWPE, MDS-filled urethane, and Vespel. Solid-plastic plain bearings typically feature dry-running, lubrication-free behaviors, and are known for their light weight, corrosion resistance, and long life. The various plastic bearings are found within farm equipment, textile machinery, medical devices, food and packaging machines, car seating, marine equipment, tills, and photocopy machines.
