Polyurethane Coated Bearings for Precision and Durability

Polyurethane Coated / Covered Bearings

Precision Polyurethane Coated / Covered Bearings

Meridian Laboratory ML6 precision polyurethane coated bearings are extremely precise and durable.  Designed with heavy duty and higher speed ratings in mind, they are non-marking and have a guaranteed T.I.R. of less than 0.001”.  For light duty applications with moderate to low speeds, see our complete line of ML6 polyurethane idler rollers.

Contrary to other manufacturers of polyurethane bearings who rely on a polyurethane tire slipped over the bearing race, Meridian Laboratory molds and bonds polyurethane directly to the race.  In fact, the bond between the molded polyurethane and the bearing race is stronger than the ML6 polyurethane itself, guaranteeing a strong bond and durable, long-lasting polyurethane bearings – with unbeatable precision and tolerances.

Custom sizes and profiles are available very affordably, with turnaround times in as little as 5 days.  Metric sizes are not listed, but available by request.

ML6 polyurethane coated bearings are available in a variety of sizes, colors, and durometers to meet any of your requirements.
