Allplastics Engineering manufactures a wide variety of thermoplastics bushes and bearings. These provide an extremely cost-effective alternative to conventional metal bearings. The thermoplastic plastic bushes and bearings are usually made from a superior Nylon material impregnated with molybdenum disulphide (MoS2). This additive lowers friction which reduces the need for lubrication and prolongs the life of the bush.

Benefits of the thermoplastic bushes and bearings:

  • Thermoplastic bushes and bearings offer good chemical resistance
  • Low friction
  • Thermoplastic bushes and bearings are non corrosive
  • Lightweight
  • These bushes and bearing are self lubricated
  • Insulating
These thermoplastic bushes and bearings have been designed with an interference fit in the OD (Outer Diameter) to allow for a good push-fit into the housing. An additional clearance needs to be allowed in the ID (inner diameter) so that when the bush is installed, it will have the correct clearances for most applications. Other factors such as temperature variations, moisture absorption and bearing speed may influence the clearance requirements. Our machined bushes can be plain or with shoulder (Flanged). Sizes can be made as small as 6 mm Dia and up to 300mm Dia.

Thermoplastic bushes and bearings can be used in a number of differing applications, such as:

  • Exercise machines
  • Sleeves
  • Electrical insulators
  • Dry running bearings
  • Bolt hinges
  • Packers
