Bu Steel Backed


Lubrication Free with Excellent Wear Resistance



In the 1960's Glacier of the UK invented the steel-backed, sintered-bronze PTFE lined DU bearing.  Like the DU bearings our BU bearings are also used in dry, semi lubricated enviroments.  It can substitute a

conventional bearing where saving space is desired.  The BU Steel Backed Bushing provides superior shock and impact load resistance. The Steel Backed PTFE Lined bushing maintains a low coefficient of

friction and is usable without lubrication at high load, low speed operations with  excellent wear resistance.  



It has a wide applicable temperature range from -319 degrees F to 518 degrees F. The thin walls and

lightweight construction enable a compact design of the product.
