Plastic Housing Series

Plastic Housing SeriesThe NTN plastic series ensures a clean operating environment.


Guards against corrosion

NTN bearing units in the plastic series feature ball bearings inserted into housings made of plastics that provide superior resistance to corrosion as compared to standard series cast iron units. This series is especially useful in a wide variety of applications because of the nonmagnetic and rust free properties of the housing.

Maintains a clean operating

The solid grease lubricant in the ball bearing, solely developed by NTN, reduces leakage from the bearing, significantly reducing environmental pollution. Also, the housing will not stain, nor is there paint to peel and contaminate the environment.

Low torque characteristics

The standard solid grease type for these ball bearing units is spot-pack which places the lubricant on the bearing cage. Torque consumption capabilities of spot-pack bearings is low due to reduced whip resistance in comparison to standard grease lubricated ball bearings.

Light weight

Weight is reduced more than 30% to 60% over standard series units.

Water resistant

The glass filled polyester housing not only reduces corrosion but offers better water resistance.
