Greenlign Bearings – Plastic Bearing Housings
Development of plastic bearing housings resulted from a strong demand for non-corrodible bearing units for machinery in the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. R.A. Rodriguez pioneered the introduction and usage of these products in Europe and are the market leaders in this field.
The precision moulded plastic housings are made to close tolerance from high grade glass-fibre-filled thermoplastic material. The housings are tough, wear and shock resistant and resist most alkaline, low acid (pH 4-9) and salt solutions. Unlike conventional cast iron housings, their smooth surface is easily cleaned, and they will not corrode or promote the growth of micro-organisms: there is no coating to chip or scratch. Housings in stainless steel are also available
