ALUMINUM A850.0 is an aluminum bearing alloy containing nominally 2.5% silicon for improved casting characteristics. It is used extensively in the T5 temper for heavy-duty applications, such as large rolling-mill bearings. It is particularly suitable for this application because of its anti-scuffing characteristics, low friction and high resistance to wear under conditions of boundary and thin-film lubrication. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, elasticity, tensile properties, and shear strength as well as fatigue. It also includes information on corrosion resistance as well as casting, heat treating, and machining. Filing Code: Al-240. Producer or source: Various aluminum companies.
