Thordon elastomeric bearing compounds will be distributed in the U.S., its territories and possessions by Waukesha Bearings Corporation, Waukesha, Wise., as a result of an agreement between the firm and Thomson-Gordon Ltd. of Canada, the developer and manufacturer of Thordon.

According to the agreement, Waukesha Bearings is the master U.S. distributor and area technical manager for the material.

The Thordon product line will continue to be available from Thomson-Gordon's existing base of U.S. distributors, and will be sold in concert with the Waukesha Bearings Corporation's national sales force.

Thordon is a blend of synthetic rubber and polymers impregnated with friction-reducing compounds.

It is machinable and/or can be molded into a variety of shapes to suit specific bearing applications. It is particularly well suited for use in water lubricated stern tube marine bearings for all types of vessels.

It is offered in three standard compounds known as "Thordon Regular, XL and SXL," each addressing specific requirements of the marine application. A wide variety of generic shapes and special configurations are available, including rods, sheets, tubes, tape, and molded products.
