Thrust Washer

Thrust Washer

Market:

Transportation

Material:

A glass filled Nylon/Silicone formulation

Application:

This application was challenging, as it required designing a one-piece Thrust Washer that would absorb the needle bearing length tolerance and function trouble-free in the universal joint housing.

Benefit:

Temperature range of -40° to +300°F. It provided both high and low temperature resistance, excellent flex fatigue resistance, and most important, low cost.
