Bearing Sleeves


Our graphite has long been applied as a bearing component in mechanical systems due to its inherent self-lubricating properties, high wear resistance, and high temperature capability.

Our family of bearing materials offers the highest performance in industry. The uniform microstructure of the graphite results in high flex strength, high crack resistance, and uniform, predictable wear over the lifetime of the bushing. For applications exceeding 900°F, we are capable of a wide range of antioxidant impregnations that extend product life and further enhance lubrication.
