Composite Bearings


Composite materials are thermoset materials reinforced by impregnating fabric with thermosetting resins. The result is a material with excellent strength, impact resistance and dimensional stability.

The precise formulation of Composites is varied to suit specific applications but all grades have outstanding chemical and mechanical properties.

An extremely low coefficient of friction, high PV limit, and superior wear performance make Composites a supreme bearing material, especially when working with heavy loads.

Composites are an ideal replacement for brass and plugged bronze at 1/6th their weight. With virtually no water absorption or swelling, Composites are a perfect material choice for wet applications.
