High strength with excellent wear resistance and durability

Tenmat composite materials used for marine bearings combine high strength with excellent wear resistance and durability. These characteristics yield high-performance marine bearings for all types of service conditions, especially in arduous abrasive and sand-laden waters, thus reducing maintenance and operating costs for end users.

Furthermore, Tenmat composites are proven not to support biofouling which can help avoid premature wear due to organic growth.
