Orkot Material Grades

Orkot® Marine Bearings are manufactured from a unique synthetic composition incorporating solid lubricants for dry running to ensure outstanding wear life. Virtually no swelling in seawater and very low thermal coefficient of expansion provide dimensional stability in arctic and tropical seas. The bearings do not corrode or promote corrosion of the housing and tolerate both edge loading and misalignment.

Orkot® TLMM Marine
The standard material incorporating a woven fabric reinforcement and solid lubricants within a thermosetting resin matrix. The material can be used in conjunction with water and grease lubrication and can run dry for limited periods.

Orkot® TXMM Marine
A further development of Orkot® TLM Marine Orkot® TXMM Marine utilizes a specialised bearing surface to extend its dry running capabilities that reduces friction and wear rates. The material can also be used with grease and water lubrication.
