We receive many questions about ourThomson Engineered Polymers (TEP). The beauty of this material is that it eliminates the need for grease or a secondary oiling process. The material used in nyliners is just as important as the design. Our TEP’s are tough, resilient, water-resistant plastics that provide our customers with low coefficient of friction with-out any secondary lubrication.


Thomson Engineered Polymer TEP’s are internally lubricated material where the lubrication is impregnated into the resin. In an application the rotational speed of the shaft or pivot linkage creates very low friction and heat which enable microscopic chambers to burst enabling the lubrication to flow on a microscopic level within the material. This will enable us to sustain very low coefficient of Friction levels without the need for secondary oiling or greasing processes.

Expertly designed and precision molded by the leader in bearing technology, Thomson offers superior performance advantages including:

  • Low Cost
  • Long Service Life / Low Maintenance
  • Low Friction / High Performance
  • No Lubrication Needed
  • Smooth, Quiet Operation
  • Hundreds of Materials to Satisfy Your Requirements
