Self-lubricating slide bearing inserts for steel roll mills made out of graphitamide reinforced with fibres

slide bearing inserts

Graphite composite in synthetic matrix reinforced with fibres exhibits a much lower coefficient of friction to steel (0,15) than textolite (0,3),Graphitamide has the ability to adjust its shape, absorb vibrations and impact energy, stress and abrasive contaminants, It is resistant to water, oil, petrol, alkalis and acids. The exceptionally high resistance to wear of graphitamide is achieved by reinforcement of fibres lubricated by graphite, which create a three-dimensional sliding structure protecting the matrix resin from abrasion.

The results of comparative laboratory testing of mechanical and tribological properties of textolite and graphitamide
