Orkot Bond Fitting Methods

The method of bearing fixture will depend upon the design employed. However, the key point to be emphasized is that in addition to traditional mechanical fixing, OrkotĀ® materials can be bonded to both itself and metallic substrates.

If the assembly is to exceed +60°C to +70°C/ +140°F to +158°F in temperature, then interference fitting should be replaced with adhesive fitting.
Numerous adhesives are compatible with Orkot® and have been tested within our laboratory facilities.Generally the most suitable adhesives are :

  • Epoxies
  • Acrylics
  • Cyanoacrylates
  • Polyurethanes
For specific details of bonding agents and conditions, please see our engineering manual in the Literature section, or contact our technical department.
