Plastic Plain Bearings

Maintenance-free plastic plain bearings are made from an advanced bearing material using nanoparticles – iglide X6. The material is up to six times more wear resistant at long-term temperatures of 482°F than iglide T500 bearings. Press fit is improved by up to 50% and the material has an even greater resistance to chemicals. The plastic plain bearings are available in 24 dimensions.
