Ertalyte TX

Product Description

Polyester Product Description

ERTALYTE TX is a polyethylene terephtalate compound incorporating a uniformly dispersed solid lubricant.

Its specific formulation yields a premium, internally lubricated bearing-grade.

ERTALYTE TX has not only an outstanding wear resistance, but offers in comparison with ERTALYTE and even lower coefficient of friction as well as higher Pressure-Velocity capabilities.
