Composite Bearings

 

Lamitex® composite bearings are designed with the latest high-performance composite materials. The result? Extended wear life of the bearing and the mating parts. Carbon-graphite, Alumina and Molybdenum Disulfide fillers can be added to a modified phenolic resin formulation to provide internal lubrication that reduces frictional heat and extends wear life. Lamitex® composite bearings have been used in many rolling mill bearing applications to replace bronze, copper and lead Babbitt bearings. Other benefits include low friction, low heat build-up, no cold flow conditions and excellent resiliency.

High-pressure presses with computer controls ensure that Franklin's bearings are manufactured to specifications with the correct pressures, cycle times, conditions and temperatures. Our bearings are manufactured with pressure applied perpendicularly to the bearing load surface. This means exceptional mechanical strengths and extended wear life for your application.

Lamitex Composite Bearing Materials
Lamitex® composite SBE materials offer load-bearing capacities equal to those of brass and bronze; unlike metallic bearings, they won't seize to the metal shafts. SBE Provides superior load-bearing properties and has a coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) that closely matches the CTE of metal shafts.

SBE 10 composite is a fine weave cotton fabric impregnated with a high temperature phenolic resin formulation

SBE 10G composite is a fine weave cotton fabric impregnated with a high temperature phenolic resin formulation with an added graphite filler giving the bearing self-lubrication characteristics.

SBE 10M composite is a fine weave cotton fabric impregnated with a high temperature phenolic resin formulation with an added molybdenum disulfide filler giving the bearing self-lubrication characteristics.

SBE 100 composite is a coarse weave Kevlar® fabric impregnated with a high temperature phenolic resin formulation. Our longest lasting bearing; SBE 100 will meet the toughest bearing needs. 

PF-30 composite is a coarse weave jute fabric with high temperature phenolic resin formulation with an added graphite filler giving the bearing self-lubrication characteristics.

SBE 60 composite is a coarse weave cotton fabric impregnated with a molybdenum disulfide (moly) filled phenolic resin formulation.

SBE 70 composite is a coarse weave cotton fabric impregnated with a modified phenolic/alumina resin formulation made in a red color for easier inspection of bearing surfaces.
