Tenmat Feroform and Railko grades of reinforced composite
materials have been developed containing ‘built-in’ lubricants.
The product not only meets the stringent requirements of
pressure capability, low friction (very low stick-slip) and low
water swell, and also have approvals for dry operation for
upper Pintle bearings.
Tests confirm that Feroform and Railko marine bearings
have better wear resistance than elastomeric and polyester /
polyester bearing materials, thus providing ship owners with
up to 4 times longer service life and lower operating costs.
Tenmat Feroform and Railko bearings are self-lubricating
and can be used in dry applications as well as traditional
applications where grease or oil is present, and can also be
used with water lubrication.
