- high absorption of moisture of up to 3 % in standard atmosphere. Results: in increased impact resistance. Please note: In thin-walled parts, reduced mechanical strength and dimensional stability.
- excellent noise and vibration damping
- excellent sliding properties
- high abrasion resistance
- high mechanical strength coupled with high impact strength
- excellent machinability
- good adhesive properties
- good weldability
Field of application
Universally deployable parts exposed to high loading; frequently used as a substitute for aluminium and bronze.
Mechanical engineering, offshore, vehicle construction, food processing industry
e.g. sliding parts, rollers, bushes, bogies, cable winches, lifting gears, rope pulleys, conveyor stars, spiral conveyors
