Graphite has long been applied as a bearing component in mechanical systems due to its inherent self-lubricating properties, high wear resistance and high temperature capability. POCO’s family of bearing materials offers the highest performance in industry. The uniform microstructure of the graphite results in high flex strength, high crack resistance, and uniform, predictable wear over the lifetime of the bushing. For applications exceeding 900°F, POCO offers a range of antioxidant impregnations that extend the life of the product and further enhance lubrication.
Other impregnations may be added to further increase toughness and reduce friction.
