Fibrex® bearings utilize an innovative blend of PTFE and glass fibers bonded onto metal sheeting to provide the strength and dimensional stability of a metallic body with the low friction and tribological properties of a reinforced PTFE matrix.
In addition to these design characteristics, Fibrex bearings minimize Brinelling, fretting, and other forms of wear along the contact area. With its inherent damping properties, Fibrex® bearings are suitable with a wide range of mating materials and can sustain extremely high loads well beyond the range of solid TFE or any other solid lubricating bearing. Both radial bearing and thrust washer design options are available.
The Fibrex® Bearing Advantage
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.
