Trelleborg Sealing Solutions is launching its Orkot® C620 composite material, developed specifically to meet the needs of the aerospace industry, in particular the requirement for a strong, lightweight material to withstand the high loads and stresses to which landing gears are subjected.
\Orkot® C620 offers a low coefficient of friction to reduce wear and withstands high loads while minimizing stick-slip. The reduced stick-slip with low dynamic and static friction allows for safer high-load movements and provides smooth landing gear operation on both takeoff and landing.
Orkot® C620 is a high specification hybrid material featuring a strong fiberglass backing combined with a low friction Orkot® TX coating to provide outstanding, long-lasting durability without delamination. The properties of the different layers increase load-carrying capacity and strength, while reducing friction and wear to maximize efficiency and provide maintenance-free service life.
