MP-G bearing structure

MP-G is a thermoplastic material with a wire of fibers mixed with solid lubricants. The product shows a good wear proofing feature, the solid lubricants reduces the friction factor and form, by micro abrasion, an excellent sliding surface with the counter-piece. There are several applications, ranging from office supplies, to medical equipment, pneumatic cylinders, hinges, rudder bars, etc. The MP-G series includes cylindrical and flanged bearings as well as washers, and special parts are available on demand.
