Metallized Carbon Corporation presents Metcar grades M-199 and M-201 high temperature mechanical materials. These unique carbon/graphite Copper impregnated materials are designed to operate without lubrication in dry and dust prone environments. This proprietary Copper impregnation greatly increases the load carrying capacity for bearings and thrust washers manufactured from these self-lubricating materials.
For operating temperatures between 400º-750º F, these Metcar grades are ideal for bearings and thrust washers in a variety of applications such as, but not limited to: kiln cars, continuous dryers, dust conveyors, ventilating dampers, furnaces and high temperature conveyors and applications where conventional lubricants would break down and fail.
Bearings manufactured from Metcar materials are self-lubricating, non-galling, dimensionally stable and have high compressive strength. Boasting high electrical conductivity, high load capacity and wear resistance, these materials are completely homogenous and provide continuous lubrication for their service life, making them an excellent candidate for bearings and bearing assemblies for applications in extreme temperature conditions.
