  • Tin
    that for nearly all other metals (which facilitates casting). Upon severe deformation, tin and tin-rich alloys work soften. Principal uses for tin are as a constituent of solder and as a coating for steel (tinplate, or terneplate). Tin is also used in bronze, pewter, and bearing alloys. Tin and tin alloys
  • Bronze and Copper-Alloy Bearings
    Dozens of copper alloys are available as bearing materials. Most of these can be grouped into five classes: copper lead, copper tin (sometimes called tin bronze), leaded bronze, aluminum bronze, and beryllium copper. As a general rule in these alloys, a higher lead content promotes compatibility
  • Aluminum-Alloy Bearings
    and conformability. For automotive use, considerable improvement in antiscoring characteristics and embeddability is obtained by using a thin-lead babbitt or electrodeposited lead-tin overlay. Aluminum bearing alloys are used either as solid cast material or as aluminum strips (normally from 0.02 to 0.125
