CIP Composites are laminated
composite bearing materials made by
impregnating fabrics with thermosetting
resins. The physical properties of CIP
Composites make them an excellent
choice for various bearing and wear
CIP Composites offers an attractive,
performance driven alternative to the
more traditional phenolic materials
commonly used for wear rings. CIP
Composites are easily machined and
perform excellently in heavy duty
applications where high loads, shock
and edge loading may be anticipated.
CIP materials are non-metallic and do
not contain fiberglass or any abrasive
fillers (such as calcium carbonate).
CIP Wear Rings are designed to
allow ideal movement between parts
and prevent metal to metal contact in
hydraulic cylinders. Reduce overall
maintenance and increase wear life
with CIP Wear Rings. These are ideal
for high performance applications.
CIP custom manufactures all wear rings according to the customer’s
specifications. Based on outside diameter (OD), and thickness (T), wear
rings are available in inch or metric dimensions. The angle cut allows for
maximum bearing exposure.
CIP Wear Rings are designed with a gap to allow the material to expand in
the cylinder. The recommended gap takes into account the rate of thermal
expansion and is best determined according to the OD of the wear ring.
