Royals FRPR - COMPOSITE BEARINGS


DESIGNED FOR HYDRAULIC, PUMP & MARINE APPLICATIONS

Seals for Hydraulics & Pneumatics


-- Your Partner for Sealing Solutions
ROYAL manufactures a range of thermoset composite bearings, used
widely in Engineering and Marine applications. Incorporating
advanced polymer technologies, these composites are made from
technical fabrics impregnated with thermosetting resins and evenly
distributed solid lubricants and additives to satisfy various
engineering applications.

ADVANTAGES OF USING ROYALS FRPR


Excellent mechanical strength.
High load capacity and shock load resistant.
Low maintenance, allows for reduction or elimination of wet
lubrication.
Excellent electrical insulation and good chemical resistance.
Excellent dimensional stability in water, corrosive fluids, and
chemical solutions.
Long life, wear resistant.
Non-abrasive to mating surfaces (no abrasive fillers/
calcium carbonate.)
Low coefficient of friction
Operates in fresh or salt water without lubrication
Damping of vibration
Ease of machining
Fitting by pressing, freezing, adhesives and mechanical
methods

MACHINING FRPR
FRPR materials are readily machinable by
conventional machine shop techniques. In general,
methods used for machining softer metals like brass
or aluminium applies for FRPR materials as well. It is
preferable to use tungsten carbide turning tools with

cutting speeds of 5.5 metres (19 feet) per second.


FRPR materials must be machined dry without the use
of coolant.

Apart from Composite Bearing, Royal specialises in Wear Rings for Hydraulic &
Pneumatic applications made of different raw materials.

The main function of Guide ring is to guide the rod or the piston of a hydraulic cylinder
and absorb the forces that act perpendicular to the direction of movement. Guide rings
also help in preventing any metallic contact between any sliding parts, minimizes the
eccentricity, and thus overall increases the seals life.

Materials
In view of the different specific demands made on piston and rod guides, various Guide
ring materials are available:

FRPR Fabric Reinforced Polyester Resin composite material is used in heavy duty
applications where high radial forces are generated.(q=120 Mpa)

PAGF Glass filled Polyamide material is used in medium to heavy duty applications.
Friction-reducing fillers can be added for special applications. (q=40 Mpa)

Filled PTFE (PB40/PB60)- Filled PTFE material guide rings are used in low to medium
duty applications where limited radial forces are generated. Low co-efficient of friction
allows the wear ring to be used in Pneumatic applications as well where high speeds are
required.(q=20 Mpa)

The total radial load on the piston, the surface speed, type of hydraulic fluid used,
temperature of the system etc. is to be kept in mind while selecting the appropriate
Guide ring. Please do not hesitate to contact our Technical Department for further
information on specific applications and special technical questions.
