Metallized Carbon Corp. (Ossining, NY) has unveiled the Metcar Grade 2500 and Metcar Grade 9800 from its Resistox (TM) family of high temperature mechanical grades. Treated with a specially formulated oxidation inhibitor, these bearings and thrust washers offer greatly increased oxidation resistance without sacrificing their self-lubricating properties, extending life.
For operating temperatures from 700° to 1000º F, Metcar Grade 2500 is ideal for high-temperature applications where conventional lubricants would break down and fail. Metcar 9800 addresses extreme temperature installations between 1000° to 1100° F, such as furnaces, dryers, high temperature conveyors and dampers.
Bearings manufactured from Metcar materials are self-lubricating, non-galling, dimensionally stable and have high compressive strength. The oxidation-resistant materials are completely homogeneous and provide continuous lubrication for their service life.
