Self-lubricating Bushing Benefits
Self-lubricating Bushing bearings utilize special polymer liners for self-lubrication and improved wear properties.
The steel backing can be zinc or copper plated or stainless steel can be used for maximum corrosion resistance.
The metal backing supports liner materials made to withstand high loads, speeds, and adverse environments.
Self-lubricating Bushing has a very low Coefficient of Friction when run dry.
Self-lubricating Bushing bearings are available in inch and metric dimensions in various combinations of liners and backing materials.
Thin metal walls allow for easier design without loss of performance.
Even if wear-thru occurs in the liner, the supporting interlayer is a self-lubricating material as well.
All liner self-lubricating sliding layer types can take extreme load conditions and speeds, even without lubrication.
The steel-backed bearings material provides structural and mechanical support for the bonding layer and the bearing surface.
The type of liner chosen is dependant on the application. Each liner has unique properties (and benefits).
