Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 1 November 2005
Status: inactive
Page Count: 10
ICS Code (Bearings in general): 21.100.01
scope:

1.1 This specification covers sintered bronze, oil-impregnated bearings made primarily from elemental copper, tin, lead, and graphite powders. The manufacturer may, at his discretion, use prealloyed bronze powder in the mixed powder.

1.2 This specification covers the following variables:

1.2.1 GradesAvailable in three bronze base compositions identifiable by different graphite contents and one leaded bronze grade.

1.2.2 TypeGrades 1 and 2 are available in four types described by specific density ranges. Grade 3 is available in two types and Grade 4 is available in one type.

1.3 Bearings ordered to this specification will normally be sized after sintering and will be impregnated with a lubricating oil unless otherwise specified by the print.

1.4 The values stated in either inch-pound or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with this specification.

1.5 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test methods described in this specification. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
