ZX-100 Family

Basic type ZX-100K

Allround up to 110 °C
ZX-100K is a high quality plastic compound made of a thermoplastic base with excellent tribological properties in dry running condition. It is so successful in the most diverse applications thanks to its excellent combination of properties, that make it to be an "all round plastic".
