Solving Issues with Wear and Friction Technologies

Our tribology experts provide Wear and Friction Resistant solutions for optimal performance of mating and moving parts that might otherwise have issues such as messy external lubrication, abrasion, stiction, degradation due to extreme conditions, noise, or scratching and marring.

Wear - External Lubrication

External Lubrication

Replace oils and grease applied in messy secondary operations with our internally lubricated plastics.

 Use wear resistant or lubricated plastics for

  • Bearings, slides, gears, and cams — Keep moving parts free of external grease and lubricants.
  • Pump impellers — Save money and energy by using lightweight, injection molded thermoplastics rather than machined metal to significantly lower start-up torque.
  • Gears — Improve resistance to repeated flexural bending, a primary cause of tooth failure.
  • Bushings and rollers — Reduce noise in material handling systems and accommodate cleanroom or washdown environments.
  • Sliding components — cover panels, doors, and latches on consumer electronics.

Does your application operate at high pressures and velocities (PV’s)? At high temperatures? If so, you need to look at our new Ultra Wear materials which are engineered for high PV’s and high temperatures.
