A sintered bronze system is applied to plane bearings with some lubricants. A bronze-based, sulfide- dispersed Cu alloy was developed via sintering. Sulfides had some functions, reduction of friction resistance, preventing scoring and seizure. Effects of the developed sulfide-containing bronze were investigated using a journal-type testing apparatus in wet conditions; results indicate that the developed bronze may have some anti-scoring properties.
