A CLEAN HARBOUR
Thordon Marine Bearings have proven their superior performance in the largest and smallest vessels of the world.
Thordon's tough elastomeric properties provide extended wearlife at reduced friction levels. Extended wearlife means less time in dock and reduced lifecycle costs.
Thordon does this without the aid of petroleum lubricants. Thordon can be lubri- cated by seawater, or in some applications will run dry.
No petroleum lubrication means no seals, no seal problems, and no seepage of stern tube oil or rudder bearing grease into the waterways of the world.
Together we can reduce lifecycle costs and environmental impact. Thordon Marine
Bearings are classification society approved.
