In low speed, high load applications, LUBRON AQ solid lubricants have a typical coefficient of friction between 0.02 to 0.10, depending on a variety of factors affecting performance. Type of environment, bearing load, velocity, temperature, finish and hardness of the mating surface all influence coefficient of friction. LUBRON AQ bearings provide proven performance for demanding underwater applications. LUBRON AQ’s bronze alloy and solid lubricant construction offers the optimum choice for toughness, rigidity, and low coefficient of friction, dry or immersed. Cast bronze alloys have been used for centuries in a broad spectrum of bearing applications. Other bearing materials have been unable to match their versatility. By alloying copper with other elements, the properties of bronze can be altered to suit the requirements of most any application. The choice of a bronze alloy for a particular application is determined by the desired physical, mechanical and metallurgical properties needed. For applications exposed to flowing water, corrosion resistance becomes a critical consideration. Corrosion associated with high water turbulence includes cavitations, erosion, and impingement attack.
Self -Lubricating bearings are referred to as maintenance- free or greaseless bearings as that required no relubrication or grease. Pre-lubricated bearings will require relubrication at some point in their service life. Self-lubricating bearings work by having lubricant impregnated within the sliding layer of bearing. Lubricant can be either be liquid or solid based on the requirement of application(based on operating temperatures.)At the bearing operates, the lubricant is released through pores in the sliding lubricating the bearing surface. The lubricant is uniformly dispersed throughout the sliding layer and thus there is no reduction in low friction bearing is also usually included at the top of the sliding layer to provide low friction.

Ding studied the powder metallurgy oxidation behavior at different temperatures, different processes and different atmospheres, and results pointed out that the amino atmosphere was more protective than nitrogen . Cao prepared Ti6Al4V coating by sintering 23 μm Ti particles and 40 μm Al-V powder. The powder was cold pressed to 180 MPa before sintering, and then sintered at 1250°C in vacuum to prepare Ti6Al4V coating. Studies had shown that increasing pressure during powder metallurgy preparation of products, and using an atmosphere to protect the environment or vacuum environment is conducive to the reduction of porosity. All spherical bearings can be supplied in various grades of sintered bronze and iron, with lubricants to suit different applications. Various bore tolerances and non-standard lengths can be supplied. Oilite bearings can be stored for considerable periods without deterioration or loss of oil if kept in a metal or other non-absorbant container, at room temperature.
Typically these bearings require an outside lubricant to achieve maximum performance. Class I — bearings that require the application of a lubricant from an external source (e.g., oil, grease, etc.). Integral plain bearings are built into the object of use as a hole prepared in the bearing surface. Industrial integral bearings are usually made from cast iron or babbitt and a hardened steel shaft is used in the bearing.

Low stress, high frequency, small amplitude motion applications such as ground transport suspension systems and helicopter flying control and rotor systems have been thought for many years to require the technology disclosed in GB —i.e. a bearing having a counterface of extreme hardness and smoothness. As soon as the surface finish of the counterface is damaged, those irregularities or rough areas further damage the liner creating more liner debris resulting in increased backlash in the bearing leading to a reduced bearing life.
Typically, reaction temperature is in the range of about 20° C. to about 100° C., and is preferably about ambient temperature. In addition, customers demand bearing coatings with good wear properties. Under high temperature conditions, bearings typically wear more quickly.

The results showed that the coating friction coefficient range was 0.05–0.15 under different loads . Zhang prepared a MoS2 coating containing nano-graphite particles by electroplating brush, and tested the friction coefficient was from 0.05 to 0.15 . However, the plating prepared by the electroplating brush is not uniform, and the bonding strength is not as good as that of chemical electrophoresis. Studies had shown that metals such as In, Ni, and W improve the wear resistance of sliding bearing coatings . The addition of rare earth metals such as La, Ta, Nb significantly improved the frictional mechanical properties of the sliding bearing coating . Electroplated plain bearings are currently the most widely used preparation methods, but the plating solution is highly polluting and does not satisfy environmental production requirements. The magnetron sputtering is one of the most advanced technologies for the preparation of sliding bearings. Compared with electroplated bearings, magnetron sputtering bearings have better bonding strength and surface lubricity. However, magnetron sputtering requires a process such as pumping, vacuuming, and sputtering to form a uniform film.
