Polygon's PolyLube Custom-Engineered and Standard Composite Plain Bearings feature high load-bearing capacity, low frictional values and corrosion resistance. The Polygon Composite Bearings are self-lubricated, requiring no greasing.
Polygon Composite Bearings are made of continuous filament-wound glass fibers, polymer resins and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) fabric liners. The fiberglass filament and epoxy resin combine together to form a high strength backing. This precise filament-wound fiberglass structure allows for thin-walled, lightweight bearings. The bearings are typically retained through outside diameter (OD) interference fit.
The field retrofittable Polygon bearings can replace existing metallic bushings without changing mating parts, so they can be used to improve wear material without requiring complete equipment redesign. Availability of small-batch/short-run drop-in replacements means customers can increase bushing OD and length without a large tooling investment.
