TCB20 Boundary Lubricating Bushings
Structure Characteristics and Applications
TCB201 is designed for marginal lubricating bushing. It is backed with copper-plated steel with porous bronze sintered on it and polymers (POM) imbedded into the bores of the bronze. The steel back provides the products with high quality low carbon steel. Oil dents stamped on the surface of the polymer can achieve good lubrication between the bushing and its mating axis. It is of good anti-abrasion and load capacity. The plating coating on the surface is erosion protective. And it is environmental protective as no lead included in the surface polymer POM. Products of TCB20 series are widely used on automotive chassis, forging machines, mine quarrying machines, metal melting and casting machines and in water irrigating and steel rolling industries.

Normally, the surface polymer of TCB201 is of chemical-erosion resistant quality. So its erosion-prevention quality is primarily decided by the quality of the steel back and its plating layer. Air-erosion could be effectively prevented if the steel back is plated with bronze or tin. If the bushing is to be used in erosive environment, the steel back needs to be plated with zinc, etc.
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 TCB201. If there is need to prolong the service Life, PV value must be reduced.
When the environment temprature is above 40℃ , performance of TCB201 will be obviously debased. Therefore, the higer the working temperature is, the shorter the life of the products would be.
3).Quality of the Mating Surface
When Roughness of the mating surface Ra=0.4~0.63, service life of TCB201 could be obviously prolonged.
