DESIGNED

  • ZX-100K

    Manufacturing of wear resistant sliding bearings bushings, bushings, linear guides, lead screws, rollers, gear wheels and other parts.

  • ZX-230

    For spare parts operating under conditions of intense mechanical, thermal and electrical stress, especially if transparency is required.

  • ZX-324

    For the production of sliding parts for use at high temperatures in combination with high surface pressure of 15 MPa.

  • ZX-410

    Manufacturing of sliding bearings running at higher temperatures, speeds and loads than the material ZX-100K.

  • ZX-530

    Sliding parts and it is the best solution for operating in aggressive chemical environments.

  • ZX-550

    Effective alternative to PTFE. Its wear resistance is ten times higher than PTFE. It is indispensable when you need a small static friction in combination with oil paint to 70 °C.

  • ZX-750

    Ideal for sliding speed over 200m/min and temperature of more than 100 °C. It is used in the nodes where the load and dimensional stability need to be improved.

CHARACTERISTICS

  • ZX-100K

    High wear resistance, low coefficient of friction, lubrication is not required in the process of operation, resistance to a wide range of chemicals ph from 1 to 9.

  • ZX-230

    high strength and toughness, high dimensional stability, high chemical resistance, high resistance to X-ray and infrared radiation. 

  • ZX-324

    High tensile strength and fatigue. Suitable for welding, gluing, work in a vacuum. Higher wear resistance and pv performance than of standard PEEK.

  • ZX-410

    Dry running, corrosion resistance, fire resistance, dimensional stability. The cost, wear resistance and pv-value are better than PEEK.

  • ZX-530

    It is not affected by most chemicals, substitutes the fluoropolymer and ceramics, in the nodes of sliding surpassing their characteristics.

  • ZX-550

    It is resistant to hydrolysis, does not absorb moisture, high heat and cold resistance. It operates at temperatures ranging from - 250 °C up to + 250 °C.

  • ZX-750

    It has the highest pv-performance of all polymers Zedex brand. High endurance limit. It does not support combustion, work in vacuum.

APPLICATION

  • ZX-100K

    Effective solution for many nodes. Machines, guillotine, machine tools, pumps, hoists, grapple and many more.

  • ZX-230

    Instrumentation, Automotive industry, Appliances, Medicine, Food industry and more. 

  • ZX-324

    Mechanical engineering, automotive, trucks, packaging machines and others.

  • ZX-410

    Hydroelectric power plants, treatment facilities, pumps, valves and more.

  • ZX-530

    Drying chambers, electroplating lines, pumps as a part of equipment in chemical, oil and gas industries and others. It is effectively used in cases when bronze sliding bearings or fluorocarbon polymers do not endure the load long enough.

  • ZX-550

    It is applied in chemical, electrical, food industry, medicine, vehicles and others.

  • ZX-750

    It is used in mechanical engineering, medical engineering, in deep-water hammers.

ANTIFRICTION MATERIAL FOR EVERY USE

Plastmass Group produces anti-friction wear-resistant materials ZEDEX series, which are high-quality alloys on the basis of thermoplastic. For many years our engineering plastics have been  successfully used for solving various problems in the field of sliding friction in many industries, replacing the traditional materials such as bronze, polyamide (caprolon), fluorocarbon polymers, textolite, sintered powders, ZAMAK, cast iron, metal-fluoroplastic tape eliminating inherent to these materials shortcomings and problems.

The main positive characteristics of the family of  ZEDEX brands:

  • minor coefficient of dry friction and thermal expansion;

  • high wear resistance, vibration strength and damping in a wide temperature range;

  • ability to absorb large abrasive particles and push out small in a friction pair of metal and ZEDEX sleeve;

  • the ability to withstand high pressures and spread the local pressure caused by the contact of the edge voltage over a greater area;

  • the absence of corrosion, high resistance to chemicals and UV radiation;

  • high accuracy of installation with an interference fit on the metal shaft without gaps;

  • physiological safety;

  • minimum water absorption;

  • the factor of dielectric losses of the same order with traditional dielectrics;

  • the antistatic agent

Increased wear resistance with continued friction and work without lubrication allow to produce wear-resistant sliding parts: sleeves, bushings, pulleys, sprockets, gears, cams, spindle nuts, worm wheels, rotation crown wheels, guides and more from ZEDEX blanks.

 

The application of ZEDEX materials will allow you:

  • to increase the reliability of sliding nodes, increase their resource;

  • to reduce the cost of maintenance and repair of the stock of equipment due to the cost reduction of components and services;

  • to reduce accidents and do not waste time for machine repairs due to the high quality

Test our material.

The minimum purchase is not limited! You can buy the desired amount of material on trial (in units, centimeters, meters) and check the efficiency of it on the mechanisms of your technology park.
