Bearing Material

Metcar Grade M-11 is a plain, unimpregnated, carbon-graphite material that has good self-lubricating qualities and good wear resistance when running dry at temperatures up to 650°F. It is an economical grade that is suitable for bearings that must run continuously at relatively light load and low speed. Metcar Grade M-11 is extensively used for bearings in equipment such as high-temperature air dampers and high-temperature conveyors. Metcar Grade M-11 is available in all Metallized Carbon standard sleeve bearing, standard flange bearing and standard thrust bearing sizes. It is also available in all of the standard, self-aligning pillow block and self-aligning flange block assemblies offered by Metallized Carbon. Bearings in the grade can also be manufactured to meet your size specifications.
