PFC-22 Composite Bushings
Good chemical resistance
Good wear resistance
High load capacity
Excellent dimensional stability
Low water absorption
Kintowe composite bushes are ideal for replacing conventional metal materials, like bronze, brass, nylon and other urethane based products, they are made of synthetic fiber reinforced with polyester resin and other ingredients, which can be used in numerous different applications. In order to improve their mechanical properties, for example the friction coefficient, the resins are often blended with friction modifiers such as, Graphite, PTFE or MoS2 or often a combination of these.
Friction Coefficient (dry)
Kintowe composite bushes can be easily machined to exact specifications to fit your application. It is installed with an interference fit. Freezing the bushes in liquid nitrogen or dry ice will allow for easy fitting of bushes into housing. As the bush returns to normal temperature and increases in size, the proper interference with the housing will be obtained. It can also be installed using a draw bar or press fitted into place.
