Orkot®, Turcite® and HiMod® Bearings
Available from Trelleborg Sealing Solutions
Composite bearings are fitted within an application to allow constrained relative motion between two or more parts. They are mechanical devices that support another part and/or reduce friction.
Polymer bearings, such as our Orkot®, Turcite® and HiMod® products, offer significant advantages over traditional metal bearings. All are dimensionally stable, have excellent wear resistance and outstanding low-friction characteristics, giving them unrivalled performance in dry or with boundary lubrication.
In addition, Orkot® bearings have virtually no swell in seawater, making them ideal for hydropower applications. Their superior elasticity over metal bearings means they can take edge-loading and counter misalignment even under extremely heavy loads.
