DRY SLIDING (PLAIN) BUSHES - CHEMICAL RESISTANCE:

The data shown below is based on laboratory tests and actual service records. Because factors such as turbulance, temperature, PV, degree of contact, etc. are variables which can affect performance, it is always advisable to test material under service conditions before specifiying our sliding bearings for new applications.

A- Fluid has little or no effect

B- Fluid has minor to moderate effect

C- fluid has severe effect

Unless otherwise noted, concentrations of aqueous solutions are saturated.
All ratings are at room temperature unless specified.
