Wear and abrasion resistance

Even in dusty abrasive environments such as foundries and mines, metallic bushes, gears and other components have been successfully replaced by AustLon®. The combination of AustLon®’s mechanical properties for elongation to break and impact resistance combine to provide a highly wear resistant plastic. Further to this the addition of highly developed fillers such as in AustLon® Oil Filled significantly reduce surface contact between components again reducing wear.

So even with infrequent lubrication, components run for extended periods before maintenance is required.
