The im­proved Oz Monyt Su­per Poly­mer is the lat­est plas­tic in­no­va­tion by Oz Seals. Classed as a su­per strong bear­ing ma­te­rial, Oz Monyt has sur­passed all other bear­ing ma­te­ri­als in dura­bil­ity, in­clud­ing ac­etal, filled ny­lons, filled polyesters and bronze.

It cov­ers prop­er­ties of high abra­sion re­sis­tance, load bear­ing ca­pac­ity, lu­bri­ca­tion prop­er­ties and di­men­sional sta­bil­ity. Bul­let­proof yet light­weight, Oz Monyt is suit­able for ma­rine and mil­i­tary ap­pli­ca­tions. It is able to pro­vide a ser­vice life of over 10 times that of other plas­tic engi­neer­ing ma­te­ri­als used.

Oz Monyt is an ideal bear­ing ma­te­rial for weir bands, backup rings, step seals, anti-ex­tru­sion rings and glide ring seals.

At the same time, it is kind to shafts and bar­rels. Un­der dirty and un­lu­bri­cated con­di­tions it re­mains ef­fec­tive due to its per­ma­nent triple lu­bri­ca­tion prop­er­ties, car­ry­ing a low fric­tion co­ef­fi­cient (0.18/0.22) and ex­cel­lent bush tem­per­a­ture re­sis­tance of up to 120˚C. This al­lows higher speeds to be used, thus im­prov­ing per­for­mance.

When sub­jected to high pres­sures, Oz Monyt re­tains its shape and does not swell when im­mersed in wa­ter. As a re­sult, ac­cord­ing to Man­ag­ing Direc­tor of Oz Seals Wil­helm Prinz, it “has a great mem­ory, re­quires lit­tle clear­ance and needs vir­tu­ally no al­lowance for mois­ture changes”.

Oz Monyt can be used for a di­ver­sity of in­dus­tries and ap­pli­ca­tions. It’s con­sid­ered an ideal bush ma­te­rial for ma­rine ap­pli­ca­tions, while be­ing the pre­ferred ma­te­rial for the min­ing, earth­mov­ing, avi­a­tion, in­dus­trial, com­mer­cial, au­to­mo­tive and con­struc­tion in­dus­tries.
