Cermatec™ bearings replace worn bronze bearings

Cermatec™ offers a durable, abrasive resistant, non-seizing alternative to bronze shaft bearings


Replace bronze bearings with Cermatec™

Cermatec™ can be used to replace bronze bearings where improved wear resistance is required. While bronze has good non-seizing properties, it can exhibit a high wear rate in many services. Worn bearing components require frequent maintenance intervals and increase the life cycle cost of the machine. Cermatec™ offers a dimensionally stable, non-seizing, durable alternative which can increase the life of your machine.

What to do

  • Replace bronze bearing components with Cermatec™
  • Check fits and clearance for operating temperature due to the difference in the coefficient of thermal expansion of the two materials
  • Check the hardness of the mating material to ensure it is sufficient


  • Non-seizing bearing components with a low wear rate
  • High load-carrying capability
  • Longer machine life
  • Lower life cycle cost for operating the machine
