Babbitt Metal

Babbitt metals are one of several alloys used for the bearing surface in a plain bearing. Babbitt metals are characterized by their resistance to galling. The Babbitt metals provide sufficient softness for excellent conformability and embeddability, offering good fluid-forming properties. They are easily cast, can be rigidly bonded to Cast Iron, Steel, or Bronze, run satisfactorily against a Steel shaft, and show excellent corrosion resistance.

Babbitting is a process by which softer metals are bonded chemically or mechanically to a shell or stiffener, which supports the weight and torsion of a rotating, oscillating, or sliding shaft.

All Babbitt metals are available as Ingot.
