Our Bronze-filled PTFE bearing strip is a flexible, low friction strip with high thermal conductivity, low thermal expansion and good creep resistance.
Because of this material's self-lubricating properties and high compressive strength it is much less likely to stick-slip when operating at low rotational speeds, even with higher radial forces when compared to other strip materials.
Our standard Bronze-filled PTFE strip contains 40% Bronze powder and 60% PTFE however other content ratios are available on request.
The image here shows our standard colour, a dark brown, but it is possible to dye bronze/PTFE strip so, for example, blue or green strip could be supplied.
This material is commonly used in hydraulic systems and is particularly suited to linear bearings.
