The OILES Hiplast/E is manufactured by OILES Deutschland GmbH. It is a metal mesh PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) plain bearing with a wall thickness of 0.5 mm providing a compact design. It can be used in self-lub conditions.
It provides low coefficient of friction, high load carrying capacity, and high level of wear resistance. It is also resistant to chemicals and thermal stability. Its good thermal conductivity is due to the adoption of bronze expanded metal mesh. To prevent rattling, the OILES Hiplast/E is designed to have small clearance.
