Polygon Company released its line of PolyLube high-performance custom engineered and standard composite plain bearings (bushings). These composite bearings feature high load-bearing capacity, low frictional values, and corrosion resistance. Self-lubricated, without requiring any greasing, they help reduce maintenance costs and increase the maintenance interval. Additionally, they can lower the number of greasing location, resulting in fewer equipment warrantee claims.
Polygon composite bearings also maintain cleanliness inside warehouses, avoiding potential contamination pf the work area by pallet lifting equipment. They are made of continuous filament-wound glass fibers, polymer resins, and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) fabric liners. The fiberglass filament and epoxy resin combine to form a high strength backing. The field retrofittable Polygon bearings can replace existing metallic bushings without changing mating parts, thus, they can be used to improve wear material without requiring complete equipment redesign.
