Babbitt and Pewter Tin Alloys

At William Rowland, we supply ingots and bars of both English and Scandanavian pewter, as well as producing Babbitt metal (tin-based white metal) in our in-house facility. Our Babbitt metals are made from high-grade primary metals, and offer several advantages over other metals such as friction resistance, excellent load-bearing and ease of fabrication. We supply 1kg bars or 13kg ingots.

White Metal Bearing Alloys (Babbitt Metal)

Tin based white metal (Babbitt) bearing alloys are manufactured on site from high grade primary metals. Such alloys offer an unmatched combination of excellent load carrying, friction resistance, run in and ease of fabrication characteristics. Also the ability to hold an oil film and operate in the absence of adequate lubrication. These characteristics are due to white metals dual phase properties whereby harder, low friction particles are held in a soft, malleable matrix. These tin alloys are commonly used in plain bearings of the thrust or journal type and employed in high speed and load applications such as automotive and aero engines, marine transmission assemblies, heavy machinery such as crushers and power generation turbines.

We can produce to BS 3332, ASTM B-23 or NES specifications or alternatively customers may specify a custom alloy.
