Good for Bearings

Bearing grade plastics exhibit long life when used for friction and wear

Plastics can be used for applications that require rubbing contact with mating metal surfaces. UHMW (a soft, tough plastic) offers outstanding abrasion resistance. Nylon and Acetal (both stronger than UHMW) are often used for applications that require superior mechanical properties.

High performance materials such as PEEK and DuPont™ Vespel® are frequently used for applications that involve high temperatures, loads, and/or speeds.
