MB01-1 Non standard available on request.

MB01-2 All products unless otherwise stated.

MB01-3 Applicable to DIN standard.

Other bearing materials for special applications are also available

NOTES:

  1. Density, oil content and open porosity determined according to BS EN ISO 2738:2000
  2. Radial crushing strength, according to BS EN ISO 2739:2010
  3. PV factor = Pressure (N/mm2) × bearing surface velocity (m/s) where pressure = load (N) ÷ Projected area (d × L) and d = inside diameter (mm).
  4. Bars, Cored Bars and Plates may contain up to 1% C.
