Self-Lubricating Polymer - Offers low friction and high wear-resistance


This polymer compound is filled with solid lubricants, which are released when the polymer is abraded. The release of lubricants lowers the coefficient of friction and improves the wear-resistance of the polymer.

Used for:

It is used in machine construction for plain bearings and sliding elements that are long-lasting, maintenance-free, and lubrication-free. The polymer bearings can often replace traditional bronze bearings or metal-backed bearings.


Different base polymers are used, e.g. PA6, PA66, or PEEK, in combination with fibre reinforcements and functional fillers; the compounds are customised for specific applications. There are special compounds for high loads, high temperatures, high speed, or food contact.

The sample:

The sample is as shown on the picture. The length of the rod is 6 cm and the diameter i 15 mm. You can slide the sample on the shaft to get a feel for its low-friction properties.

All samples come with a laminated information card, which includes contact details for the supplier.
