Bimetal strip from tin-aluminum alloy, Bimetal Bearing for internal combustion engine connecting rod.

Viiplus offers a broad range of sizes, forms, and materials in monometallic and bimetallic bearings. Bimetal and metal bearings offer excellent corrosion resistance in industrial outdoor applications and in water, marine, and offshore environments. Viiplus bearings can be made in many sizes and forms, including thin-walled, thick-walled, flanged, cylindrical, sintered and oil-impregnated, and more.

Bimetal-bearing is a bimetal bearing, wrapped of steel sheets with a layer of lead bronze.

The standard sizes are fitted with lubrication indents on the running surface. For standard bearings is normally the steel backing copper plated to improve the corrosion resistance. The layer of lead bronze makes it possible to use these bearings with relatively long lubrication intervals.
Bimetal-bearings can be manufactured with a thicker lead bronze layer for applications where the bearing has to be machined after mounting. The material of the layer can be fitted to the special needs of the application in question.
