Maintenance-free, food-safe plastics

Our FDA-compliant and EU 10/2011 certified polymers are self-lubricating and dry-running, meaning they don’t require external lubricants and eliminate the risk of contamination. They’re also maintenance-free and resistant to corrosion and chemicals. Our polymer materials can be used on all types of shafts – including 300 series stainless steel – offer low moisture absorption rates, and can withstand continuous operating temperatures of up to 482⁰F. Most orders ship within 24 hours directly from our warehouse.
