In February, 2015, after removal and disassembly of rollers, performance test of Oxafen inserts for support and carrier rollers was deemed successful based on the following results:
- no play and beat was detected;
- no lubricant leaks were found;
- removed inserts did not reach terminal wear and were fit for continued operation in bearings of bulldozer rollers.
Based on positive results of long-term performance tests, Oksafen composite material was recommended for manufacture of bulldozer track roller inserts; other applications of this material for anti-friction components in tractor vehicles are being considered.
