Treated with a specially formulated oxidation inhibitor, Metcar Grade 2500 and Metcar Grade 9800 bearings and thrust washers offer greatly increased oxidation resistance without sacrificing their self-lubricating properties, resulting in longer life. Metcar Grade 2500 is ideal for general-purpose high-temperature applications (between 700-1000°F) where conventional lubricants would break down and fail. Metcar 9800 addresses extreme temperature installations between 1000-1100°F such as furnaces, ovens, dryers and high-temperature conveyors. Bearings manufactured from Metcar materials are self-lubricating, non-galling, dimensionally stable and have high compressive strength. Metcar materials are completely homogeneous and provide continuous lubrication for their service life.
