High performance, pollution free, engineered technology.
Duramax Marine, the world leader in water lubricated bearing technology, offers an engineered, dimensionally stable rudder bushing and thrust washer designed to outperform competitive products. DuraBlue needs no lubrication and is exceptionally wear-resistant, with an extremely long wear life. DuraBlue composite material has a low coefficient of friction value of 0.04 to 0.08, resulting in no stick-slip during rudder operation. DuraBlue is also available in standard sheet stock and custom machined components for use in wear pad marine applications.
