‘Bulletproof’ and lightweight seals
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.
