Polygon Company's new range of composite plain bearings.

Polygon Company says that it will showcase its new range of composite plain bearings at US construction show CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020, planned for 10-14 March 2020, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

Polygon will also showcase its PolySlide composite tubing for pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders at the show.

According to the company, its custom-engineered and standard composite plain bearings on display are suitable for construction equipment applications, such as wheel loaders, excavators, back hoes, and compact track loaders. The bearings have high load-bearing capacity, low frictional values, and corrosion resistance, and are self-lubricated, requiring no greasing.

PolySlide composite tubing is suitable for pneumatic and low-pressure hydraulic applications such as fifth wheel actuation, gate valve actuators, water treatment flow control mechanisms, and tie rod cylinders, Polygon says. PolySlide tubing can replace metallic material in a variety of cylinder applications and can be supplied as a cylinder tube ready for customer assembly, or as fully engineered cylinder assemblies for equipment manufacturer applications. The tubing is made of continuous filament-wound glass fiber and polymer resins combined together to form a high strength component that exhibits dimensional stability, is non-corroding, impingement resistant and is non-conductive, according to the company.
