Composite thrust bearings
Composite thrust bearings provide an axial load carrying capacity and low friction operation of rotating components.
Kintowe composites are commonly used to replace more traditional bronze, babbitt, nylon and wood bearing materials. Composite thrust bearing is a particular type of rotary bearing. Like other rotary bearings they permit rotation between parts, but they are designed to support a high axial load while doing this (parallel to the shaft).
