Orkot® Slydring® & Bearings

Orkot® materials are made of special thermoplastic resin impregnated with a fabric composite of fine weave fibers.

Where heavy-duty bearing systems are required, Slydring® bearings made from Orkot® material are an established solution worldwide. They offer excellent service life, high compressive strength, heat and chemical resistance along with very low friction characteristics.

Orkot® Slydring® improves system life and reliability
For rod and piston applications in dynamic hydraulic systems where high side loads are present, Orkot® Slydring® bearings can act as guide rings to maintain correct positioning and concentricity of reciprocating and rotating components. Use of Orkot® Slydring® prevents metal-to-metal hardware contact between moving parts and eliminates scoring and fretting of hardware, resulting in improved system life and reliability.

To select the optimum material for your application use our online tools:

  • Material search allows you to identify compounds that meet specific property requirements and those that comply to specific approvals or standards.
  • Chemical compatibility check allows you to find the level of resistance of material groups to a broad range of media, both fluids or gases including those used within semiconductor manufacturing.
