Original Press Release:



Polymer Bearing Material Boasts 10X Life of Other Injection Moldable Polymers



A new, patented injection moldable and machinable polymer for making wear-resistant bearings and other parts featuring high strength, high modulus, low creep, and excellent dimensional stability, chemical and steam resist-ance has been introduced by Tri-Mack Plastics of Bristol, Rhode Island.

Tri-Mack Maxton® H-3 is a high performance thermoplastic friction/wear material for producing journal- and plane bearings, vanes, seals, thrust washers, piston rings and related parts. Providing up to 10X the life of traditional thermoplastic bearings, Maxton self-lubricating bearings feature 100,000 PV @1,000 FPM and can operate at temperatures from -60°F to 550°F.

Custom molded, and machined with ±.0005" tolerance in complex shapes from 1/8" x ¼" up to 24" dia., Tri-Mack Maxton® H-3 exhibits 26,400 psi flexural strength, 17,800 psi tensile strength, 3.9 psi x 106 flexural modulus, 2.9 W/MK thermal conductivity, and is non-abrasive for use against stainless steel and aluminum. Applications include electric and air motors, rotary vane pumps, fans, conveyors, tentors and stentors, brakes, and clutches.

Tri-Mack Maxton® H-3 Custom Bearings are priced according to customer speci-fication. Literature and price quotations are available upon request.
