Plain bearings - Multilayer materials for thin-walled plain bearings (ISO 4383:2000, IDT)
This International Standard specifies requirements for multilayer materials for the manufacture of thin-walled plain
bearings (half bearings, bushes, thrust washers). The multilayer material consists of a steel backing, the bearing
layer (cast, sintered, roll bonded) and possibly an electrodeposited overlay.
NOTE Environmental concerns will, in the future, restrict the use of some materials such as lead.
