Polygon Company, announced its line of PolyLube high-performance custom-engineered and standard composite plain bearings (bushings). Featuring high load-bearing capacity, low frictional values, and corrosion resistance, Polygon composite bearings are self-lubricated, reducing maintenance labour costs and increasing maintenance interval.
Polygon composite bearings are made of continuous filament-wound glass fibers, polymer resins, and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) fabric liners. Fiberglass filament and epoxy resin combine to form a high strength backing. The bearings are retained through outside diameter (OD) interference fit.
The field retrofittable Polygon bearings can replace existing metallic bushings without changing mating parts.
