Plain bearings consisting of a Fiber-Reinforced Composite Structure.
Filament Wound Bearings, also known as Filament Bearings, are plain bearings consisting of a Fiber-Reinforced Composite Structure with the radial and axial strength to support high loads. The sliding layer consists of continuously wound PTFE and high-strength fibers while the backing consists of continuous wound fiberglass.
These Filament Wound Bearings have an inert nature making them ideal for applications in corrosive environments such as sea water and acidic environments. Additionally, the Filament Wound Materials are resistant to a much greater range of chemicals than metallic bearings.
