Wear Strips

Kaman Specialty Bearing Wear Strips

Kaman offers multiple types of Wear Strips with each providing unique characteristics to prevent metal-to-metal wear and fretting damage from sliding or rubbing surfaces.

KAron V Wear Strip

Karon Wear Strip

KAron V Wear Strip consists of standard KAron Grade V self-lubricating bearing material applied on to a thin fiberglass substrate. The KAron V bearing material provides a low sliding friction for wear resistance. It comes with a removable woven nylon peel - ply on the back of the fiberglass to protect the bonding surface from dirt and debris.

KAron V Wear Strip is designed for surfaces that are subjected to light to medium duty rubbing pressure, or as a fretting resistant barrier. The mating sliding material should be smooth, hard, and a corrosion resistant surface. For optimal KAron V liner performance, the sliding component should have a minimum surface roughness of 16 RMS (0.4 μm), and be in full contact with the KAron V Wear Strip to avoid line or point loads.

P54 Wear Strip

P54 Wear Strip

P54 Wear Strip is a thin sheet self-lubricating bearing material comprised of a resilient thermoset resin matrix with synthetic fibers in a laminate construction for strength and durability. P54 comes with a removable woven nylon peel-ply on one surface to protect the bonding surface from dirt and debris.

P54 is designed for applications where standard off – the - shelf wear resistant plastics fall short in performance. It can be used where impact resistance is required, under edge loading, in heavy abrasion applications, and where gross amounts of contaminants can be expected. P54 can operate against rough surfaces and against soft materials such as aluminum or composites.

P54 Thin Wear Strip

P54 Thin Wear Strip consists of the same resilient thermoset resin matrix and type of synthetic fibers as P54 with a thinner cross section of 0.010" (0.25mm). This version comes with a removable woven nylon peel-ply on one surface to protect the bonding surface from dirt and debris.

P54 Thin Wear Strip is ideal for applications that require impact, fretting, or abrasion resistance along a thin cross section. The mating sliding material should be smooth, hard, and a corrosion resistant surface.
