Our Mission: Provide a reliable environmentally superior water/self lubricated bearing solution that has the lowest lifecycle cost in each sector application. Lignum-Vitae bearings have over 100 years of proven performance with no oil or grease needed. Water/self lubricated wood bearings remove the threat of EPA lawsuits and expensive manufacturing of toxic plastics and composites.
We believe environmental issues will eventually dictate removal of all oil and greased materials that threaten leaking into the water supply. Lawsuits filed in various watersheds will accelerate conversions to environmentally friendly water lubricated bearings. Risk adverse operators will require a reliable water lubricated bearing to replace all sealed oiled bearings.
