Engineering Plastics: Reasons to Use Plastic Bearings Over Metallic Bearings

Engineering plastics refer to plastic materials that have been enhanced to have a higher mechanical as well as thermal performance. This makes them much stronger than regular plastic that is used for commodities such as polyethene or PVC, which are used in the manufacture of plastic bottles, plastic containers and more. Since engineering plastics have enhanced performance, they tend to be more expensive than their conventional counterparts are. As such, they are produced in smaller quantities and are used for applications such as bearings and other mechanical parts. Read More
