Trelleborg Sealing Solutions (Trellborg, Sweden) has introduced Orkot C620 composite, which has been specially developed to meet the needs of the aerospace industry, especially the requirement for a strong and lightweight material to withstand the high loads and stress.


As part of its commitment to sustainable innovation, and recognizing the need for new materials to support the transition to lighter, more fuel-efficient aircraft, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions developed Orkot C620 as an alternative to metal bearings. High-load material. It reportedly has the benefit of smaller, lighter components, reducing maximum takeoff weight and extending flight time before repairs.


Orkot C620 is a high specification hybrid material with a strong fiberglass backing combined with a low friction contact surface composed of TXM Marine (TXMM) reinforced medium woven polymer material for optimal, long-lasting durability and Will not be layered. According to the company, the properties of the different layers increase load capacity and strength while reducing friction and wear to maximize efficiency and provide maintenance-free service life.

Shanul Haque, Product and Innovation Manager at Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, said Orkot C620 has a low coefficient of friction to reduce wear and withstand high loads while minimizing stick-slip. The reduced stick-slip of low dynamic and static friction makes high-load movements safer and provides smooth operation of the landing gear during take-off and landing.


For demanding applications, Orkot C620 has a high impact strength of 200 kJ/m2, making it both resilient and adaptable, allowing manufacturers to design larger, stronger components. With a flexural strength of 320 MPa, Orkot C620 is versatile and durable. Additionally, it remains flexible and resilient enough to return to its original shape to provide vibration damping.
