Recommended Working Temperature for Plastic

You may have had a hard time finding out what the heat resistance is about for various types of plastic. As a manufacturer of plastic bearings, we are fully aware of the importance of heat resistance and working temperatures for plastic. What is the “recommended working temperature” for plastic in the first place? It is a temperature at which the sliding parts like bearings keep their best performance for a certain period of time. Keep it in mind that that recommended working temperatures may vary depending on for which components or parts you use certain plastic.

Plastic bearings, on the other hand, have a self-lubrication property and hardly get seizure or rust. Is it OK to use metal bearings in the water?  Of course not.  Lubricants are washed away and metal bearings get rust in the water. Plastic bearings do not require any lubricants, so you do not have to worry about de-lubrication.  In fact, water plays a role as a lubricant for plastic bearings.  Not needing lubrication is just one of the benefits plastic bearings have. To find out more of the advantages of plastic […]
