Orkot is available in tubes, sheets and custom machined bearings
Orkot® is a thermoset composite material incorporating advanced polymer technologies. The material is made by impregnating a thermoset resin with fabrics, solid lubricants and other additives to ensure optimal material properties are achieved. It is ideally suited for high load bearing applications which operate in an environment that makes lubrication undesirable. The material also provides superior performance in salt- and fresh-water applications as it will not corrode like metal alternatives and its wall thickness swells less than 1%.
