Steel shell backed with a lead bronze lining bearing material for oil lubricated applications. This material has high load capacity and good fatigue properties. It is widely used in automotive applications such as compressors, steering gear, power steering, pedal bearings, king-pin bushes, tailgate pivots, mechanical handling and lifting equipment, hydraulic motors, agricultural machinery etc.


1. Sinter bronze powder: good wear resistance and excellent load carrying capacity.
2. Steel backing: provides exceptionally high load carrying capacity, excellent heat dissipation.
3. Copper plating thickness 0.002mm provides good corrosion resistance.
