Coatings or Sleeves?




Roller Coatings: Use the tape measure to measure the coating or sleeve length. Measure to the nearest 1/32″. Place the angles or straight edges against the front face of the bearings. Use the tape measure to measure from the angle or straight edge to where the coating starts.

Calipers must be used to measure the coating diameter,similar to tube diameter. Measure to the nearest 0.001″.

Describe the softness or hardness (durometer) of the material. Please include the purpose of the coating to help us determine the best solution. Specify the color of the material.
