The use of our Thomson Engineered Polymers (TEP) enable us to effectively mold blends of high compressive strength low friction materials to provide target Plastic Bearing solutions to application design challenges. Our TEP’s are tough, resilient, water-resistant plastics that provide our customers with low coefficient of friction with-out any secondary lubrication. A common question we receive is, "What is the difference between TEP 110 and TEP 642. Read on to learn the answer...
Thomson Engineered Polymer TEP 110 is our base internally lubricated material designed for low load/low rotational speed applications. This is our low cost bearing grade which comes in white color material.
Thomson Engineered Polymer TEP642 is our high performance internally lubricated and reinforced materials which are designed for high load/high speed applications in Automotive-Marine-Lawn/Garden industries.
