King’s R&D unit, the TechLab, has been developing a variety of leaded and lead free materials to provide high load capacity while meeting all environmental requirements. The first tri-metal lead free material, SV, is a silver-based overlay material containing solid lubricant additives. Silver is being offered exclusively to the aftermarket by King and is considered a cost effective sputter replacement. It provides identical features such as load capacity and conformability as the previous sputter material while offering a cost effective alternative.

“We saw a need to develop a solution for new highly loaded engines.” Said Limor N. DePetro, King marketing & sales director. “Our new strengthened bearings are both environmentally responsible and also can withstand extreme loads.”

King will also display its new XP Race Bearings that feature a proprietary pMax Black tri-metal composition, which combined with unique geometric features, results in a 24 percent load capacity increase over standard race bearings. King will also introduce its sputter bearings line and a strengthened aluminum based material.

You can visit King Engine Bearings at the AAPEX show in booth #2454 at the Sands Expo Center. For more information, visit www.kingbearings.com.
