TECHTRON ® HPV & PSBG BEARING GRADE PPS
click to resize photo Techtron ® PPS HPV (extruded)
This grade of Techtron, containing carbon, graphite and PTFE lubricants, offers the lowest coefficient of friction and the best machinability for all PPS grades. Techtron ® HPV has an excellent combination of low friction, low wear, high limiting PV, low mating part wear, and easy machining. The formulation of this product is in compliance with applicable food contact regulations in 21 CFR and can be used in contact with all foods under conditions of use C through H as defined in Table 2 of 21 CFR 176.170 (c). NOTE: The responsibility for evaluating the finished food contact article for conformance with FDA, EU and any other applicable requirements lies with the manufacturer of such article. Techtron HPV is  medium blue  in color.

Techtron ® PSBG PPS (compression molded)
This bearing grade of Techtron PPS, also containing carbon, graphite and PTFE lubricants, is produced in larger sizes by using the compression molding process. It's properties are similar to those of Techtron HPV (extruded), but is NOT FDA compliant. Techtron PSBG is  black  in color.
