ZX-530 Family

Base type ZX-530

ZX-530 has got a continuous temperature resistance up to 240°C and can be used even for a short time up to 260°C. Its chemical resistance is comparable to that of fluorocarbon polymers. At the present time, solvents that can damage this plastic compound up to 200°C are not known.

ZX-530 is also characterized by high mechanical strength, low friction and high abrasion resistance in dry running condition. These properties are largely given at temperatures up to 250°C and even with a chemical exposure. Because of this impressive combination of features, ZEDEX-530 is ideal for maintenance-free plain bearing bushes, sliding parts and seals. Up to now, bearings made of ZEDEX-530, thanks to their high strength and toughness, are the only plastic plain bearing bushes that achieve the performance and precision of metal bearings in oil-lubricated applications.
