Wear Resistance

Controlling wear and friction can deliver numerous system benefits including longer part life and reduced maintenance, higher efficiency and less energy loss, higher load bearing and run speeds, and elimination of noise. Thermoplastics resins and compounds can be effective at solving wear and friction issues and offer advantages over metals including improved corrosion resistance, reduced weight/lower inertia (power requirements), and elimination of external lubricants.

  • Ardel PAR


    Ardel PAR

    tock shapes extruded from Ardel Polyarylate (PAR) resin are specifically formulated to endure the damaging effects of UV light. When exposed to UV light, this unique material undergoes a molecular rearrangement resulting in the formation of a protective layer essentially serves as a UV stabilizer.
