MP-210 bearing structure

MP-210 is a thermoplastic material with a wire of fibres mixed with solid lubricants. This product has a low moisture absorption, good chemical resistance, low coefficient of friction, low wear against different shaft material; the best performance are with soft shaft material.

The applications can be various: ranging from office supplies, medical equipments, pneumatic cylinders hinges, pedal controls, etc. The MP-210 series includes cylindrical, flanged bearings, washers and special parts.
