CIP Composites


CIP Composite™ material is a laminated polymer material made by impregnating fabric with thermosetting resins. The physical and mechanical properties of all grades of CIP make them excellent bearing materials. CIP composites offer design engineers an attractive, cost effective alternative to the traditional materials used throughout industry for bearings, wear pads and other components. CIP is only 1/6 the weight of steel, easily machined, has good dimensional stability and contains no harmful or toxic materials.


  • Low maintenance, allows for reduction or elimination of wet lubrication.
  • Excellent electrical insulation and non-magnetic series are available.
  • Excellent dimensional stability in water, corrosive fluids, and chemical solutions.
  • High load capacity and shock load resistant.
  • Excellent mechanical strength.
  • Long life, wear resistant.
  • Non-abrasive to mating surgaces (no abrasive fillers/calcium carbonate).
  • 100% Bearing material (No fiberglass or metallic shell).
