AMS: AMS 4805, MIL-B-5687, ASTM-B-438, SAE 841
Alloy Description: Oil Impregnated Bronze
A pressed-powered alloy engineered for “planned porosity”, this product accepts oil impregnation throughout its entire structure. The resulting benefit is a bearing product that has little to no wear in period. Due to its microstructure, applications are limited to lower-strength designs. With its proprietary production methods, few societal entities have created a specification for this product. It can be used in industrial bearings, farm and gardening equipment, and non-flight-critical aircraft bearings.
- Excellent lubricity
- Good machinability
- Moderate strength
