White Metal Bearings

white metal
INTRODUCTION White Metal or Babbitt Metal is a soft white, anti-friction alloy originally developed by Issac Babbitt in 1839 which mainly consisted of Tin, Copper and Antimony.  Fast forward to today, and you will find quite a variety of white silvery alloys with varying characteristics. DESCRIPTION White metal is primarily used to line cast iron, steel and bronze bearing shells. White metal can be either a tin based or lead based alloy containing moderate amounts of copper and antimony. T...

Copper Stainless Coatings

Copper Stainless Coupling Journal
Description Copper Stainless composite coatings contain hard Stainless Steel particles in a soft Copper matrix. Copper Stainless composite coatings are ideal for bearing surfaces as they exhibit excellent fretting corrosion properties as well as having moderate wear and corrosion resistance. The ductility and low shrinkage properties of Copper Stainless composite coatings allow for applications up to several millimeters thick on curved surfaces, such as shaft journals and inter...

Stainless Steel 420 Coatings

SAM_2180 (Small)
Description Thermal Spray coatings of Stainless Steel 420 are used in applications which require hard surfaces with good wear and corrosion resistance. The low shrinkage properties of Stainless Steel 420 allow it to be applied up to several millimeters thick on curved surfaces, such as shaft journals and internal diameters. During the coating process the maximum component temperature is monitored and controlled to remain below 70˚C in order to prevent any distortion. The low coating app...

TSA Coatings

Heat Exchanger TSA Coating
Description Thermally Sprayed Aluminium (TSA) coatings provide total corrosion protection of coated surfaces and significant life improvements when compared to conventional barrier coatings. TSA coatings do not require additional cathodic protection and can tolerate up to 6% of total coated area as exposed substrate, caused by general wear and tear, which would normally result in coating failure if a conventional barrier coating was used. TSA coatings are ideally suited for atmospheric, ...
