Wrapped composite sliding bearing with lubrication pockets/ copper-plated steel & CuSn10Pb10 | Low-maintenance | DIN 1494 / ISO 3547

Bearing properties

  • BIV-MET® is a low-maintenance bronze plain bearing. However, initial lubrication is required—both oil and grease lubrication are possible. Due to the lubricant depots, the relubrication intervals are greatly reduced! For high loads and oscillating movements as well as for rough operation and temperature load.


  • Support material steel copper plated (1.0330)
  • Sliding Layer CuPb10Sn10 (leadfree on request)
