3 Things About "Self-Lubricating Bearings" Your Boss Might Want To Know

Posted On April 01, 2015


Self-lubricating bearings are an excellent choice for a variety of applications.  They outperform other types of bearings in environments that are dirty or involve higher temperatures, handle high load capacities, and require less maintenance. 

There are three types of self-lubricating bearings:  oil-impregnated sintered metal, self-lubricating metal-polymer, and lubrication-free solid polymer. 

Here are additional list blog posts here at Advanced EMC Technologies on Polymer Bearings:
