Fibrex® Bearings

Fibrex® material are specifically designed for bearings. They consist of a unique fabric weave of PTFE/ Glass fibers which is bonded to a stainless-steel backing with a durable adhesive. The PTFE fibers provide extremely low friction while the glass fibers provide structural support and a surface for bonding.

The stainless-steel backing provides extreme load-bearing capabilities beyond the range of solid PTFE and any other solid-lubricant bearing.

Fibrex® Bearings are a unique thin-wall bearing design that offers the strength and stability of a stainless-steel body with the low coefficient of friction (.05-.1) and tribological properties of a reinforced PTFE matrix. With a maximum bearing load of 50,000 psi and the ability to withstand temperatures up to 350°F, our Fibrex® bearing is dimensionally stable, self-lubricating, non-conductive, and non-magnetic.

Both radial-bearing and thrust-washer designs are available. Applications include valves, commercial fire sprinkler systems, mixers, blenders, swivels, and extruders.

Consider Fibrex® when

  • Corrosive substances are present
  • Contamination from lubricants is not tolerated
  • Replacement is critical and costly
  • High impact loads are encountered
  • Bearings will be subjected to very high loads at low speed
  • Lubricant films cannot be maintained in the bearing area
  • Custom sizes are needed
    • .027” - .090” Thickness
    • 8” max diameter
    • 8” max length
