Press Release Summary:
Metcar Grade 2500 and Metcar Grade 9800, which exhibit oxidation resistance without sacrificing self-lubricating properties, can be used in manufacturing non-galling and dimensionally stable bearings and thrust washers to promote extended product life. While Metcar Grade 2500 is suited for general-purpose applications with operating temperatures from 700 to 1,000Ã‚Â°F, Metcar 9800 addresses extreme temperature installations from 1,000 to 1,100Ã‚Â°F.
Original Press Release:
MetcarÂ® High Temperature Materials for Bearings Applications
Designed for use where oil or grease lubricated bearings and thrust washers fail
Metallized Carbon Corporation, a global leader in the manufacture of oil-free, self-
lubricating materials, presents Metcar Grade 2500 and Metcar Grade 9800 from its Resistox(TM) family of high temperature mechanical grades. Treated with a specially formulated oxidation inhibitor, these bearings and thrust washers offer greatly increased oxidation resistance without sacrificing their self-lubricating properties, resulting in longer life.
For operating temperatures between 700Â°-1000Âº F, Metcar Grade 2500 is ideal for general purpose high temperature applications where conventional lubricants would breakdown and fail. Metcar 9800 addresses extreme temperature installations between 1000Â°-1100Â° F, such as furnaces, dryers, high temperature conveyors and dampers.
Bearings manufactured from Metcar materials are self-lubricating, non-galling, dimensionally stable and have high compressive strength. Boasting remarkable resistance to oxidation, Metcar materials are completely homogeneous and provide continuous lubrication for their service life, making them an excellent candidate for bearings and bearing assemblies for applications in extreme temperature conditions.
