Sliding Bearings for rudder, stern tube and deck machinery

BALTMARINE TRADING can offer you a range of advanced composites materials made by ACM COMPOSITES (UK). These are fiber reinforced plastic laminates, ideally suited to highly loaded bearing applications in a variety of environments.
The material is available in tube and sheet forms as well as in fully finished components such as structural bearings, washers, wear rings, spherical, wear pads, wear strips, rollers, and bushes.
ACM COMPOSITES offers to engineers a real and effective alternative to phosphur bronze, with many advantages over this and the other traditional bearing materials sometimes used in its place. L2 Marine grade has been specifically formulated for marine environment applications.
