Other Products

Let Laird Plastics help you transition from metal to plastic components. Plastic components reduce cost and weight while maintaining the strength and contributing to structural integrity. Plastic also significantly increases component life.


Applications

  • Wheels and Rollers
  • Bushings
  • Gears
  • Sprockets
  • Wear Pads
  • Wear Strips
  • Wear Elements

Materials

  • Polyethylene (PE)
  • Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene(UHMW-PE)
  • Nylon (PA6)
  • Filled Nylons (PA6)
  • Bearing Grade Polyethylene terephthalate (PET-P)
  • Bearing Grade Polysulfone (PPS)
  • Polyamide-imide (Torlon)(PAI)
  • Bearing Grade Polyether ether ketone (PEEK)

Benefits

  • Self -Lubricating: Cut cost and contamination from lubrication; lower coefficient of friction and extended wear life
  • Noise Reduction: Eliminate noise levels from metal on metal wear
  • Weight Reduction: 1/7 the weight of metals—reduce cost of drive systems
  • Electrical/Thermal Insulation: Inherently insulating—reduce use of expensive assemblies or coatings
  • Higher Temperature Resistance: Makes plastics applicable to areas once restricted to metals
  • Longer Wear Life: New materials minimize wear even at higher loads and line speeds
  • Longer life and higher performance = Improved productivity
