The Hallite 533 glass-filled polyamide bearing is designed to provide an extremely effective, hard wearing, and easy-to-use bearing solution for reciprocating, oscillating, and slow rotary movement applications. The Hallite 533 is capable of withstanding high side loads and preventing metal-to-metal contact between the piston and the bore or the rod and the gland.

The PA 533 material is heat stabilised 33% glass reinforced nylon 66, which offers excellent bearing properties. The material is compatible with hydraulic and lubricating oils. The PA 533 material is not recommended for use in water based fluids (HFA) or where significant water is present, due to the swell of the nylon. For these applications Hallite recommends the use of Hallite 506, Hallite 708, or Hallite 63 bearings.

The Hallite 533 is available in molded rings. The rectangular section strip is available in a wide range of inch and some metric sizes which are available upon request. If you cannot find the size you are looking for, please contact your local Hallite sales office for additional size information.
