Libron

 

Cast Bronze

LIBRON is the new trademark of our unique technology. It’s essence is that material for bearings is manufactured by continuous casting of leaded bronze onto specially prepared steel strip. The material received with this process – cast bronze – has ideal structure ensuring maximum reliability of our products under high engine loads. Performance features of parts made of cast bronze (LIBRON) exceed several times features of similar products made with other techniques (sintering, cladding, etc.)

Prolonged Service Life

DZV products are unique not only due to continuous casting technology. A third metal layer is applied onto bimetal bearings by electroplating process. This overlay serves as solid lubricant and increases service life of our products. After forming of a bimetal part, nickel flash of 1-2 mcm thick is applied. This nickel flash forms a barrier preventing diffusion of tin into the cast bronze layer.
