Low Coefficient of Friction
Eliminates noisy stick-slip problems, extends operating life and reduces wear making for better operating efficiency. Low coefficients of friction can be achieved while operating dry or in wet environments. In low speed or oscillating operation CIP can offer bearing solutions with lower friction and wear rates than greased bronze alternatives. Static coefficient of friction is generally very similar to dynamic, even after prolonged periods of rest, where other materials may develop high break-away torque requirements.
