Picture of plastic for Bearings & Bushings

Bearings and bushings are used in virtually every type of manufacturing process or industrial machinery. If your application could benefit from less maintenance and downtime, it’s time to talk to Polymershapes about our wide assortment of high-performance plastics - like UHMW and PEEK - and plastic fabrication services for bearings and bushings. Engineered plastics such as UHMW (ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene), Acetal and PEEK can outperform traditional metal bearings and bushings across a variety of applications.  The Polymershapes plastics portfolio includes advanced materials that offer better wear, lower coefficient of friction, machinability to tight tolerances, and lighter weight, and at the same time are highly resistant to chemicals, caustic cleaners, and moisture – all while delivering longer life than metals.
