A frictional pair composed of sintered materials
It is advantageous to formulate frictional pairs both elements of which are made in sintered materials. With this approach, it is possible to make fuller use of the advantages of the powder-metallurgy technique and of the individual characteristics of each material in “designing” suitable frictional pairs for any given type of service.
The service characteristics of an FAB+SMK frictional pair operating in a moderately stressed unlubricated frictional unit are markedly superior to those of the currently used pairs (FK-16L, FAB, and SMK rubbing against SCh18-36 cast iron).
