RBC Bearings is the leader in self-lubricating technology with our patented Fiberglide® liners. We produce a broad line of standard inch and metric self-lubricating bearings in journal and thrust configurations. This unique bearing product offers the user design freedom as well as cost benefits from its “maintenance free” characteristics.

The self-lubricating thrust and journal bearings are suited for applications where normal lubrication is difficult or costly. Fiberglide® lined thrust and journal bearings are designed to be used under oscillating motion, interrupted start-stop, or axial motion. They are recommended where high loads are combined with low surface speeds. Fiberglide® products can also be used where non-lubricating fluids might be present.

Type Description Dimensions Applications
