Good for Friction and Wear

Good for Friction and Wear

Plastic materials for bearing and wear applications

Certain unfilled plastic materials such as Nylon and Acetal have low coefficients of friction and low wear rates when run against mating metal surfaces. Wear performance of these polymers can be further enhanced by including additives such as PTFE and graphite in their formulations.

Wear behavior is very application-specific. Changes in the mating surface, applied loads, or sliding velocity can greatly influence the wear performance of a plastic part.

Acetal

High strength, stiff, low friction engineering plastic with good wear properties.

CE Canvas Phenolic

Electrical grade phenolic sheet material with cotton canvas reinforcement.

DuPont™ Vespel® Polyimide

Extremely high temperature creep resistant plastic with excellent friction and wear characteristics.

LE Linen Phenolic

A composite sheet material that consists of electrical grade phenolic resin impregnated into layers of linen fabric.

Nylon

Strong, stiff engineering plastic often used to replace metal bearings and bushings.

PAI

Extremely stong, stiff, dimensionally stable plastic material often used in elevated temperature environments.

PBT

Strong, stiff plastic, excellent machining characteristics, bearing and wear, and chemical resistance.

PPS

Plastic material with excellent chemical and corrosion resistance at elevated temperatures.

PTFE

Low friction engineering plastic with outstanding chemical, high temperature, and weathering resistance.

UHMW

Extremely tough abrasion resistant, low cost plastic, used for a wide range of wear applications.
