Thermoplastic Bearing Information
When it comes to corrosion-resistant and food-grade bearings, the two primary choices in the industry are fully stainless (including stainless steel housing and insert) and thermoplastic bearings (high-strength polymer housing with stainless insert bearing). Thermoplastic bearings have continually been re-vamped through the exact polymer materials used, manufacturing processes, and specific features to further improve the bearing unit series. Thermoplastic bearings are found outside of food and corrosive applications due to their lightweight and adaptiveness in low-temperature ranges. Additionally, thermoplastic bearings have a much lower rate of conductivity in comparison to metal bearings in both electrical and temperature terms. Thermoplastic bearings also are made with antimicrobial technology to reduce the possibility for microbes of bacteria to attach to the bearing surfaces. We supply a broad range of thermoplastic bearing units that interchange directly with other brands.
