MP-300 bearing structure

MP-300 is a thermoplastic material with a wire of fibres mixed with solid lubricants dedicated in those applications where traditional self-lubricating cannot guarantee the necessary resistance to the wear. This product has a good mechanical property and excellent self-lubricating property. The applications can be various: ranging from office supplies, medical equipments, pneumatic cylinders hinges, pedal controls, etc. The MP-300 series includes cylindrical, flanged bearings, washers and special parts.
