  1. Designed for dry and maintenance-free
  2. Lower friction, excellent wear resistance
  3. Higher load capacity
  4. Excellent chemical resistance
  5. Lower moisture absorption
  6. Thin wall thickness design, reduced space and weight
  7. Can significantly reduce costs when mass produced
  8. No special requests needed for mating material

The application for high load with lower speed and lower friction request, like automotive industries, lift machineries, copier, OA machines, sports machines, food industries, chemical machines etc. Compared with the metal bushes, the weight and cost is much lower. The ASTEPB Series is well suited for large production runs with low cost and short delivery time. The user can select the bearing by temp. of work environment, wear resistance request, moving method, installation method, the cost of the material etc. Normally, the temperature, load, and PV value should be considered first. AST recommends designing towards a lower PV value since it will lead to longer service life. The thermoplastic materials can be specially formulated to match the requirements of a wide variety of applications including:

  • Economical
  • High-Performance
  • Anti-corrosive
  • Food use
  • Anti-wear
  • Anti-water
  • Electric Conductivity
  • High Temperature
  • High Strength

Not counting the material choices, there are over 200 products to choose from. However, the ASTEPB Series bushings are further sub-categorized by the following:

  • ASTEPB Series – Straight Bushings
  • ASTEPBF Series – Flanged Bushings
  • ASTEPBW Series – Thrust Washer Bushings
