CIP Composites offer the oil and gas industry self-lubricated plane, flange, and spherical bearings, wear pads, wear rings and thrust washers for a wide range of applications including launch and recovery systems, riser tensioners, pipe handling tools, pipe stacking tools, FPSO mooring systems, calm buoy, chain jack, sheaves, jack lift, windlass, and cranes.

Unaffected by salt water and noncorrosive, CIP Composites are reducing maintenance time and part replacements. A light weight, self-lubricating composite material ideal for replacing greased bronze bearings, CIP Composites can be easily installed by press fitting or freeze fitting with the ability to machine in place.
