AST090 Wrapped Bronze Series - Metric
AST090 Series Structure
The AST090 Series Bushings are wrapped of a cold formable homogenous bronze (CuSn8), which will obtain exceptional material properties. The standard sizes are fitted with diamond shaped lubrication indents on the bearing surface. These indents serve as lubricant reservoirs to rapidly build up a lubrication film in the startup movement and subsequently reduce the startup friction. The material is suitable for the construction and agriculture industries where high load and slow movement are occurring.
