TXM

Orkot TXM Marine is an advanced reinforced medium weave polymer material using a unique manufacturing process that provides a high concentration of PTFE in sliding area while maintaining high compressive strength.

Orkot TXM Marine is an advanced reinforced medium weave polymer material using a unique manufacturing process that provides a high concentration of PTFE in sliding area while maintaining high compressive strength.

The PTFE layer is several millimeters thick, making it tolerant to wear, while maintaining its low friction properties throughout the service life of the bearing. The PTFE layer is backed by the polymer, Orkot TLM Marine giving a truly homogeneous bearing material without a metal backing layer.

In areas where the running conditions are dry, Orkot TXM Marine has proved particularly effective in eliminating stick-slip problems normally associated with these operating parameters. The special PTFE layer provides for similar mechanical properties to ORKOT TLM Marine, but with substantially reduced friction and wear characteristics.
