Teclite is the collective term for a series of modern composite bearing materials. In the world of sliding bearings, Teclite sliding bearings and spherical bearings represent a perfect maintenance-free alternative for lubricated metallic/bronze bearing systems.
Teclite 100 composite sliding bearing material is composed of finely woven fibres that are impregnated with polyester resins. The physical and chemical characteristics of the Teclite composite material can be influenced to meet the needs of specific applications. The high load-bearing capacity, wear resistance and self-lubrication characteristics, together with the anti-corrosive behaviour of these maintenance-free composite materials mean that Teclite composites are ideally suited for the most challenging movement-related applications.
Teclite 100 sliding bearings
The resin in the Teclite 100 sliding bearing material is mixed with additives to improve the mechanical characteristics, in particular the friction coefficient. The physical and mechanical characteristics of the Teclite 100 sliding bearing material make it the ideal bearing material for self-lubricating bearings, for both dry and wet conditions, in which wear-resistant characteristics are required, in very demanding conditions.
Characteristics of Teclite 100 sliding bearings:
- Self-lubricating and maintenance free
- Wear resistance
- Low expansion coefficient
- Dimensional stability, also in wet environments
- 1/6 the weight of steel
- Ideal for inclination compensation
- Vibration damping
- Very high load resistance and low wear level
To guarantee the perfect performance of composite bearings, correct assembly is essential, with the perfect dimensions. To ensure the correct bearing dimensions, we carry out technical calculations to determine the perfect fit and end play, according to the customer’s shaft / mortice and tenon / housing sizes. We can offer support during installation and on request will provide full assembly support.
