SAE 863 Sintered Iron
Our SAE 863 Sintered Iron material and parts have a proven record of incredible wear resistance and longevity. They hold closer tolerances and can be made self-lubricated by the process of oil impregnation.
What is SAE 863 Oil Impregnation?
Oil Impregnation is the process where the product is vacuum impregnated with the lubricant of your choice. The lubricant is then metered from the bearing to the shaft during rotation. This is where the sintered products are known for their smooth action and self dampening features. Due to these features, sintered products are widely used in a number of industries.
Sintered Iron offers unparalleled cost-effectiveness, versatility, wear resistance and durability compared to cast iron products. Sintered Iron, which is comprised of 18-22% copper balance, permits the combining of materials which cannot be accomplished any other way. This combination of materials allows the powdered iron to have an excellent wear resistant record and unusual long life. This product holds closer tolerances and can be oil impregnated with the lubricant of your choice. Our Cored Bar and Solid Bars are offered in a huge range of sizes within virtually any size range.
