Do Air Bearings Tear or Wear Out?
Airfloat air bearings are the best performing and most durable on the market. We use only 100% urethane diaphragm material with superior wear resistance, unlike other manufacturers who use cheaper neoprene- or urethane-coated fabrics. Because they’re virtually frictionless, air bearings receive minimal wear and tear under normal usage. However, they can tear if run over sharp objects or exposed to harsh chemicals.
