Rulon® LR PTFE

Rulon® LR PTFE is a maroon colored bearing material that is best known for its versatile design properties. It is compatible with most hardened steel substrates. Mild steel is acceptable; harder surfaces are better. Rulon® LR PTFE has a practically universal chemical inertness. Of the chemicals encountered in commercial practice, only molten sodium and fluorine, at elevated temperatures and pressures, show any signs of attack. For continuous non-lubricated service, Rulon® LR sleeve bearings can operate to 10,000 PV. Higher values are available for intermittent service.

Advantages of Rulon® LR PTFE:

  • Compatible with most hardened steel substrates
  • Has a universal chemical inertness
