Replaces Bronze

Posted on: January, 19, 2016

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. Graphite plugged bronze bushings rely on full rotational movement to create an even lubrication layer. In slow oscillating applications, the lubrication layer may be uneven or non-existent and high friction or stick-slip can become a concern. CIP’s even distribution of lubrication additives allow for low dynamic and static coefficients of friction, eliminating stick-slip and noise.
