Lignum Vitae

LIGNUM VITAEĀ MATERIALĀ L012

This material is wood from the guayacum tree. Often used as a journal bearing if water lubrication is available.

 

The wood is very hard and because of its oily structure, is reasonably self-lubricating.

It is commonly used in the strut bearings for marine applications.
