CIP Composites for High Temp Applications

CIP Composites - High Temp MaterialCIP Composites offer design engineers an attractive, cost effective alternative to the traditional materials used for bushings, bearings, wear pads, and thrust washers, such as bronze or nylon. CIP Composites are only 1/6 the weight of steel, easily machined, have good dimensional stability and do not contain harmful or toxic materials.

CIP offers material selections that provide high load capacity, and dimensional stability in high temp applications, up to 400°F (200°C). Materials such as CIP333 and CIP353 are manufactured with meta-aramid textile for reinforcement, a high-quality vinyl ester resin, and solid lubricants evenly dispersed throughout the entire material.

Additional Material Benefits


CIP333 - High Temp Material

This material has the solid lubricant Polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE) evenly dispersed throughout the resin system. Example applications include hydraulic wear rings and guide blocks and bushings for press and molding equipment.


CIP353 - High Temp MaterialThis material has the solid lubricant PTFE and Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2) evenly dispersed throughout the resin system. The addition of the Molybdenum lubricant provides additional wear resistance and lubricity. Example high temp applications include kiln cart bushings, down hole tooling for the oil & gas industry, and press guides.
