Plastic sliding bearings


OMC is an oil-impregnated nylon material. It is a high-strength and self-lubricating plastic made from a nylon monomer and which stores lubricant as a result of a catalysing polymerization reaction.

OMC is popular in hydroelectricity technology, metallurgical machinery, rubber roller machinery and vulcanisation machinery.

GMC is a reinforced nylon material. It is filled with fibreglass, which gives it impressively high levels of stability and rigidity along with low stick-slip.

This material is commonly used in the mining industry, in shipyards and in the paper manufacturing industry.
