xiros® plastic ball bearings are cost-effective, self-lubricating and maintenance-free

Our specially patented polymer ball bearings are designed as superior alternatives to metal ball bearings. In most applications, xiros® ball bearings provide a longer service life because they are self-lubricating, maintenance-free and lightweight.

Benefits:​​​​​​​

  • 100% self-lubricating and maintenance-free
  • Highly corrosion-resistant (washable)
  • Non-magnetic (when using glass or polymer balls)
  • Can be used from -148˚F to +302˚F
  • FDA-compliant
  • Lightweight – 60% lighter than metal
  • Shipping within 24-48 hours
  • No minimum order quantity
See for yourself!  Try out the xiros® service life calculator to quickly determine a ball bearing suitable for your application, and then calculate its expected service life.

No more downtimes

This mobile bike wash system uses two igus slewing ring ball bearings for the bearings of the washing brushes, which work without problems despite difficult conditions.

Longer service life

Despite being used underwater, the plastic radial ball bearings installed work without failures. This is due to their self-lubricating and corrosion-free properties.
