CIP Composites are ideal for replacing traditional bronze and plugged bronze bearings. Metallic bearings require a consistent film of external lubrication for operation. CIP Composites can reduce or eliminate external lubrication systems with its self lubricating properties.
Solid lubricants are dispersed evenly throughout the material, eliminating the need for external lubrication. Offering a variety of advanced lubricants, additives and material combinations CIP can provide a product solution for a wide scope of application demands.
CIP materials do not contain toxic or harmful materials. CIP is self lubricating, therefore eliminates the need to introduce external lubricants such as greases which can be carried away by water or heat.
