Bearings are lubricated with NSKs own oil-impregnated material, Molded-Oil

.
Molded-Oil

consists of lubricating oil and polyolen resin that has an afnity for oil. Oil slowly
seeping from this material provides ample lubrication to the bearing for extended periods.

Excellent performance in water- and
dust-contaminated environments
As the lubricant is resistant to both water and dust, bearing life
under conditions of contaminated lubrication is extended.
Environmentally friendly
As oil seeping from the Molded-Oil

inside the bearing provides


sufcient lubrication, troublesome oil relling is not required.
Low torque
The bearings are lled with Molded-Oil

after a new special


treatment has been applied to the internal surfaces, thus
enabling rolling elements to rotate more smoothly than before.
Such specially treated bearings are now dened as the standard
type for general use. The newly developed bearings for high-speed
operation are similarly treated. (Patent pending)
Optimal composition and molding methods
enable high-speed operation of Molded-Oil

Bearings
Optimization of composition and molding method of Molded-Oil

improves strength and enables high-speed operation of


Molded-Oil

Bearings. (Patent pending)

conditions
After one year of use, the bearings still have excellent
lubrication performance and exhibit no signs of friction. The
Molded-Oil

shows no degradation, as illustrated in Table 1,


and can continue to be used.
Table 1 Difference in the solid lubricant before and
after usage
Total acid number and MFR are indexes representing degradation of
lubricant and resin.
Total acid number is the KOH amount required for 1-gram oil.
MFR represents the amount of resin owing out under conditions of 190C
and 211.82N (JIS K7210).

G Available Molded-Oil

Bearing type with solid lubricant type, cage type, limiting speed, and size (outside diameter, mm)
are shown in the following table.
Note: Molded-Oil

Bearings for high-speed operation have high running-in torque, and those for general use are recommended for low-speed usage.
dmn = (Bearing bore diameter, mm + Bearing outside diameter, mm) 2 Rotational speed, rpm
The limiting speeds reect the value when the internal space of the bearing is completely lled with Molded-Oil

, and vary slightly depending on the load.

Handling Precautions
To maintain the excellent long-term lubricating capacity of Molded-Oil

Bearings,
the following precautions should be observed:
I Molded-Oil

melts at about 120C. The bearings must not be heated over 100C, especially during
shrink-tting. Additionally, the bearings should not be heated by the oil bath method.
I The bearings should not be used in conditions where they may be exposed to degreasing liquids such as
organic solvents.
I A radial load is required for the bearings to properly rotate. The minimum radial load recommended for
maintaining proper rotation is at least 1% of the basic dynamic load rating.
