For more than 50 years, TENMAT have been manufacturing advanced composite materials for the marine market and supplying over 8000 vessels with high quality FEROFORM and RAILKO bearings on both commercial and military vessels operating in the harshest environments and giving excellent performance.
TENMAT composite bearings are approved by the major classification societies for use in:
>Stern Tube Bearings
>Propeller Shaft Bearings
FEROFORM and RAILKO bearings work with any type of water, run with smaller clearances than elastomeric bearings, are dimensionally and thermally more stable, and have superior wear resistance. Independent tests confirm that TENMAT materials have a significantly better wear resistance than elastomeric and polyester / polyester bearing materials from our major competitors. Thus providing ship owners with up to 4 times longer service life and lower operating costs.
