Product description

Why Ames-LFC®?
Better than Bronze for:
- Initial friction coefficient
- Steady-state friction coefficient
- Material cost
Similar to Bronze for:
- Corrosion resistance
Typical applications:
Equipment requiring low electrical current consumption and/or low noise
Equipment working in start-stop conditions, where the initial friction coefficient must be minimized
Equipment working with stationary shaft and rotating bearing
Examples:
- Automotive: Fans / Sunroofs / Mirrors / Brakes / Starters
- Domestic appliances
- Industrial
Characteristics:
Open porosity throughout inner diameter: oil feed assured
Oil impregnation ratio > 90%
Radial crushing strength > 200 MPa
Corrosion resistance similar to Bronze
Life testing:
> 1.000 hours at PV = 5 MPa·m/s, v = 1 m/s, linear and rotational, mineral oil 68 cSt
> 10.000 hours in fan motor at 25ºC (mineral oil)
> 10.000 hours in fan motor at 120ºC (synthetic oil)
