Metal bearings require greasing, attracting dirt and contaminates.  PolyLube® composite bushings use a proprietary PTFE fabric liner which embeds debris and provides lifetime lubrication. 

Contaminates will migrate to low pressure areas of the bushing and become embedded into the liner structure. The smearing action of the solid lubricant them encapsulates the contaminates, providing a smooth low friction wear surface.

World's largest supplier

Polygon is now recognized as the largest producer of composite self-lubricated bushing products in the world. We supply mega-sized bushings over 20" in diameter for gate valves used in hydro-electric plants down to 1/8" bushings used in archery equipment.
