Metcar materials are used to produce mechanical parts for applications where relative motion or rubbing of components must occur with low friction and low wear. Engineered to outperform, our materials prevail where others fall short, such as when temperature conditions are too extreme for oil and when sanitary conditions are required.
Relying predominantly on graphite for their self-lubricating properties, Metcar materials can run in the following conditions:
Over 150 different Metcar Grades have been developed to provide customers with optimum materials for their individual operating conditions, and new materials are constantly in development to meet new customer application requirements. This experience allows us to help you transform your what if to what is.
Unlike plastic materials, Metcar materials will not melt or extrude out under pressure, and will consistently perform in low temperatures ranging from -30 to -450 degrees where conventional oil & grease lubricants congeal, solidify, or become sluggish.
