Characteristics and performance

The Hallite 506 bearing strip is designed to provide an extremely effective, hard wearing, and easy-to-use bearing solution for reciprocating, oscillating, and slow rotary movement applications. Manufactured to very tight tolerances, the Hallite 506 is capable of withstanding extreme side loads and preventing metal-to-metal contact between the piston and the bore or the rod and the gland.

The Hallite 506 is available in three forms: cut bearing rings, spiral lengths, and flat coils. Spiral lengths and flat coils are recommended to customers who want to cut their own custom sizes. Spiral lengths are recommended to distributors or customers who may need to fit a wide range of application sizes in a particular cross section.

The Hallite 506 bearing strip is manufactured by a patented process, using a woven fabric reinforced polyester resin material, and is proven to be compatible with a wide range of fluids including: mineral oils, water-based fluids, and phosphate esters. The construction of the bearing strip incorporates micro-indentations on the surface to trap fluid and provide built-in lubrication to the bearing.

Product details

The rectangular section strip is available in a wide range of inch and metric sizes, including cross sections specified in ISO 10766.
