Composite wear rings
Kintowe composite wear rings are laminated polymer materials made by impregnating textiles with thermosetting resins( phenolic resin, polyester resin, epoxy resin). Solid lubricants are added to the resin to provide evenly dispersed lubrication throughout the material, providing smooth operation.
Composite wear rings can be manufactured to customers’ specifications or our engineering department can provide recommendations. Designs are based on outside diameter (OD), thickness (T), and length (L) using inch units. Kintowe wear rings are designed with a specific gap allowing the material to expand without seizing in the cylinder. The recommended gap takes into account the rate of thermal expansion and is best determined according to the OD of the wear ring. We recommend an angled cut to allow for continuous bearing support regardless of wear ring orientation.
