Orkot® TLMM

Orkot® TLM Marine is an advanced, reinforced polymer material incorporating solid lubricants. The material tolerates edge loading and misalignment even with the heaviest loads. Where there are extended periods without lubrication, such as upper pintle bearings under light ballast conditions Orkot® TLM Marine proves especially effective.

Orkot® TXMM

Orkot® TXM Marine is an advanced reinforced medium weave polymer material (sometimes called synthetic polymer alloy) using a unique manufacturing process that provides a high concentration of PTFE in the sliding area while maintaining high compressive strength. The PTFE layer is several millimeters thick and provides for similar mechanical properties to Orkot® TLM Marine, but with substantially reduced friction and wear characteristics. 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.
