Bronze Bushings/Bearings do not contain lead.

Press Release Summary:




GRAPHALLOY® bushings and bearings are nongalling and are dimensionally stable even when submerged, under load, or experiencing wide temperature swings. Able to withstand temperatures from cryogenic to +1,000°F, bearings and bushings are self-lubricating, suiting them for applications where maintenance operations are infrequent or difficult. They are suitable for deep-well and water pump applications and are also FDA-approved for food-grade applications.

Introducing GRAPHALLOY® No Lead Bronze Formula by Graphite Metallizing



YONKERS, NY (June 2009) - Graphite Metallizing Corp., in its continuing quest to solve even the most difficult application problems, has developed several bronze GRAPHALLOY® grades that do not contain lead. These essentially lead-free formulations are used in bearings and bushings where the potential for lead contamination is unacceptable.

Applications include deep-well and potable water pumps, and food-processing equipment such as ovens and conveyors. GRAPHALLOY® no lead bronze has been accepted by the FDA as suitable for many food-grade applications.

The family of no lead bronze, developed by Graphite Metallizing, offers all the advantages of leaded bronze GRAPHALLOY® without any sacrifice in performance. GRAPHALLOY® bushings and bearings are non-galling and are dimensionally stable even when submerged, under load or experiencing wide temperature swings. There are GRAPHALLOY® grades that can withstand temperatures ranging from cryogenic to +1000°F. Because GRAPHALLOY® bushings and bearings are self-lubricating, they are suitable for applications where maintenance operations are infrequent or difficult.
