A Sintered bronze system is applied to
plane bearings with some lubricants. A bronze-based,
sulfide-dispersed Cu-alloy was developed via sintering.
Sulfides have some functions that reduce friction
resistance, thereby preventing scoring and seizures.
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.
