Our engineering team has expertise in wear-product applications and understands the challenges our customers face. We are constantly researching and developing new materials and processes designed to address customers’ requirements.

We manufacture wear products such as thrust washers, glide rings, wear rings, and bearings and bushings made from our patented XPC® and Fibrex® materials.

Case History:

The friction reduction was so great that the customer was able to use a smaller actuator, saving them money and making the valve more competitive in the market.
