Bearings • Self-Lubricating Bearings
Featuring a lubricant contained within the bearing walls, self-lubricating plain bearings are used in applications where excessive friction is a concern. Able to operate under extreme hot and cold temperatures, self-lubricating bearings have a high load capacity and can be used with rotational, oscillatory, and axial sliding motions. Types of self-lubricating bearings include a plastic bearing, which features lubricant molded into the bearing. A sintered metal bearing, which has porous walls that draw oil in via capillary action, is also a type of self-lubricating bearing. Other self-lubricating bearing types include oilite bearings.

HyComp manufactures three types of self lubricating bearing materials for industrial applications: WearComp, WearComp 200 and FibreComp. They also produce two aerospace grade materials: H310 and H320. WearComp is suited for low speed, high load and high impact conditions. It is a proprietary mix of high temperature polymer and 1" chopped carbon fiber. WearComp 200 is suited for medium speed, high load and high impact conditions. It is a proprietary mix of high temperature polymer, 1" chopped carbon fiber and graphite. FibreComp is suited for high speed, medium load and low impact conditions. It is a proprietary mix of high temperature polymer, milled carbon fiber and graphite.
