Peek-lined bearings
Published:  29 September, 2017

Bowman_International.jpgBOWMAN INTERNATIONAL, a leading manufacturer and distributor of bearings and sintered components, reports it has introduced a range of high temperature, self-lubricated PEEK-lined steel or bronze backed wrapped bearings. Bowman says its new W/MP range is designed to combine the durability and anti-corrosive properties of Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK), with the production and cost reduction benefits of conventional wrapped steel bearings and it delivers optimised performance in applications operating at up to 250OC, alongside low torque properties and impressive corrosion resistance.

The cost of producing and machining PEEK from solid bars or tubes often prohibits its use in the manufacturing of many component parts but by using it to line steel or bronze components, Bowman says it can now offer a cost-effective range of bearing solutions.
