Plastic bushings

Ridderflex has over twenty five years of experience in the production of custom-made plastic bushings. For special applications, but also for conditions where usually metal is applied. In 90% of the cases, plastic can be used as an alternative material. Plastic is often a better choice; amongst others because of its chemical resistance.

Plastic bushings: in all qualities

Ridderflex produces plastic bushings in any desired plastic. We have many qualities in stock, such as: polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), PVC, polyamides (PA), POM (Delrin ®) and polyurethane. We are also a manufacturer of fluoroplastics. In our compression moulding shop we mould fluoroplastic semi-finished products of PTFE (including additives), TFM, FEP and PCTFE ourselves. Please view our complete plastic range for the available materials.

Please view our bushings of plastics in the catalogue below.

Bushings of plastics versus metal

Bushings of plastic material have a high load and are wear resistant. Metal also has a high load and is wear resistant. As a matter of fact bush bearings, sleeve bearings and sliding bearings can be produced in metal. But why is a bushing of plastic a better choice? We are happy to give you an overview:

  • Plastic bearing material is often self-lubricating (with metals this is limited, you always need a lubricant);
  • Our plastic bushings can be produced in a quality with a good chemical resistance;
  • Our PTFE bushings are food grade products (FDA).

Ridderflex = customisation

Ridderflex IS customisation. We excel in the production of customised plastic products. We develop and produce essential parts for all industries. Completely custom-made, but also according to industry standards. We can produce plastic bushings according to your specifications, based on a drawing or model. Depending on the version and dimensions, we produce minimum product series.

We are happy to advise you about the possibilities. Please contact our sales department!
