Standard range bearings shells are manufactured in either phenolic (non-metallic) or marine bronze and can be supplied with integral cast flanges.
The water enters the bearing through the longitudinal grooves and moves radially between the propeller shaft and the bearing face in a thin film. Once this film, or wedge, has developed the shaft does not actually come into contact with the bearing.
