Tufnol Resin Materials and Stern Bearings - Marine
Our high resin content components are used in the manufacture of ocean-going vessels for:
Our resin based materials are unaffected by sea water and have a low swell rate which is very predictable so that they can be very precisely designed and the stress accurately calculated. The bearings are water-lubricated so there is no need for additional lubrication or ‘environmentally un-friendly’ oils to be used. Tufnol resin based components were used in the stave bearings of the QE2.
