Wear Resistance

Along with excellent wear resistance, the alloy offers excellent machining properties. It is suitable for use in the manufacture of bushes and bearings which are used under medium load as long as appropriate lubrication is used.

Leaded bronze also benefits from good load carrying capacity and good thermal conductivity.
