FOREWORD

0.1 This Indian Standard ( Third Revision ) was adopted by the Indian
Standards Institution on 22 June 1979, after the draft finalized by the Lead,
Zinc, Tin, Antimony and Their Alloys Sectional Committee had been
approved by the Structural and Metals Division Council.
0.2 This standard was originally published in 1950 and, subsequently
revised in 1961 and 1966. In this revision of the standard, clause on shapes
and weights of ingots has been revised. Sampling clause has been modified
and impurity limits for Grade 6 have been revised, Pouring temperature
ranges and typical uses of the alloys are given in Appendix A for
information.
0.3 For the purpose of deciding whether a particular requirement of this
standard is complied with, the final value, observed or calculated, expressing the result of a test or analysis, shall be rounded off in accordance with
IS : 2-1960*. The number of significant places retained in the rounded off
value should be the same as that of the specified value in this standard.
1. SCOPE
1.1 This standard covers the requirements
bearing alloys ( see Table 1 ).

for ten grades of antifriction

2. SUPPLY OF MATERIAL
2.1 General requirements relating to the supply of antifriction
alloys shall conform to IS: 1387-1967t.
3. CHEMICAL

340 to 390
430 to 460

For lining of petrol and diesel engine


bearing cross-heads in steam engine and
other bearings used at high speeds. (As
the tin content drops in these alloys,
their resistance to shock and heavy load
increases )

75

360 to 400

Mostly used for repair jobs in mills and


marine installations.
