Title:
BEARING ELEMENT AND METHOD FOR MANUFACTURING A BEARING ELEMENT
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2015/082697
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
A bearing element (2, 3) comprises a bearing element substrate (6) and a sliding layer (5) applied to a surface of the bearing element substrate. The sliding layer is formed of a sliding layer material. A surface roughness (Ra) of the surface of the bearing element substrate is less than 1 pm. The sliding layer material comprises a polymeric material and iron oxide. The sliding layer comprises at least three layers of the sliding layer material. The bearing element may benefit from greater consistency of the thickness of the sliding layer material over the surface of the bearing element substrate and higher resistance to wear compared to known bearing elements. A method of manufacturing a bearing element is also provided.
