plastic bearings uk | plastic bearings | plastic ball bearings

Plastic bearings with stainless steel or glass balls to fit shaft sizes from 0.125” up to 0.75” diameter.

SMB plastic ball bearings are available from stock in the UK with acetal resin (POM-C) rings, nylon (PA66) cages and balls made from 316 grade stainless or glass. These plastic bearings are generally used as corrosion resistant bearings, non magnetic bearings or non-conductive bearings. We can also supply corrosion resistant and chemical resistant plastic bearings made from PEEK, PVDF or PTFE.  For good chemical resistance with higher load ratings, we supply ceramic bearings in inch sizes.

As the material is softer, plastic bearings are intended for light loads and low speeds. The maximum temperature for acetal bearings with a nylon cage is 100°C. PEEK can be used up to 250°C.  These bearings can often be supplied with plastic shields on request. Plastic bearings are not precision grade. Inner and outer ring tolerances on these bearings are much wider than tolerances for precision steel bearings.
