Plastic flange bearings offer more retention capability than a traditional sleeve bearing and would typically be used in applications where radial and/or axial loads are expected. Thomson Nyliner plastic flange bearings utilize design features such as anti-rotation keys that eliminate both linear and rotational motion.
Thomson Nyliner plastic flange bearings are made from the same high-performance polymer as the entire line of Thomson Nyliner polymer bearings and are thus more cost-efficient than a traditional metal bearing (while still maintaining the quality of standard associated with Thomson Nyliner products). Fluctuation in plastic flange bearing size is virtually nonexistent: the thin-wall construction assures that the plastic flange bearings maintain their thickness in most applications. These plastic flange bearings also feature the standard axial compensation gap to accommodate changes in temperature and humidity. Additionally, some of Thomson Nyliner's plastic flange bearings are available in Thomson Nyliner Plus high-performance polymer (capable of operating in temperatures up to 500°F).
