TCB10 Self-Lubricating Multilayer Composite Bushing
Structure Characteristics and Applications
TCB100 is backed with copper-plated steel with porous bronze sintered on the steel and polymers (PTFE) imbedded into the bores of the bronze. By combining the metals and the polymers together, its products are endowed with the lower friction coefficient and good capacity of anti-abrasion and self-lubrication. Moreover, the steel back is plated with an erosion-prevention layer. Products of TCB 10 series are widely applied in printing, textile and tobacco machinery, gymnastic equipments, etc.

2. "Stabilization" abrasion phrase: After the "Running-in" phase, the friction happens between PTFE and PTFE, thus the friction coefficient is smaller and keeps steady. As a result, the wear rate is low and steady. See the curve showed in areaⅡof the graph.
3. "Sharp" abrasion phrase: As PTFE in the porous layer is slowly consumed up, not enough lubricant can be supplied to the gliding media. Friction coefficient and wear rate will rapidly rise. When 70% of the bronze surface is exposed, service life of TCB100 closes to its end. See the curve showed in area Ⅲof the graph.
Main Factors that Influence the Service life of the Bushing
Main Factors that Influence the Service life of the Bushing1).PV Value
PV value is an effective criterion to calculate the service life of TCB100. If there is need to prolong the service Life, PV value must be reduced.
The higher the working temperature is, the shorter the life of the products would be.
3).Quality of the Mating Surface
Service life of TCB100 can be obviously prolonged if its mating axis is made by alloy steel or is plated by hard chrome and with surface Roughness Ra=0.4~0.63.
