|Supporting shell||Stainless steel / Mild steel||0,50 ÷ 2,70 mm
(Depending on Dim. of the Bearing)
Suitable for rotating and oscillating movement, Fibrex structure combines in the best possible way the mechanical strength and the chemical resistance of sintered bronze and low friction characteristics of coated PTFE with less maintenance requirements due to long re-lubrication intervals, lower wear, lower susceptibility to edge loading, no absorption of water and therefore no swelling, good damping behaviours, good resistance to impact loads. It has longer service life under low speed and high load.
This material is used in equipments like suspension and auxiliary of agriculture, construction machines, cranes, hydraulic and mechanical jibs, ball, buttery and sluice valves, water pumps and chemical industries etc.
