A350 Sleeve Bearing for Food Applications


The iglide A350 polymer plain bearing is made of an FDA-compliant bearing material that is blue in color for easier detection. The material is highly wear-resistant and can handle long-term temperatures up to 356°F and is ideal for applications in the food, packaging, and bottle-filling industries.


iglide A350 delivers low coefficients of friction and is resistant to a variety of chemicals and other liquid media. The plain bearing is also corrosion-resistant and lubrication and maintenance-free.
