Babbitt surfacing is used in tribological applications because of its low friction coefficient. Thermal spray surfacing and pouring are two widely used production processes for Babbitted parts. This paper presents a comparative analysis of structures and friction properties of Sn-Sb-Cu Babbitt layers produced by these techniques. The sprayed Babbitt coatings were produced by arc spraying of 1.6 and 3 mm diameter wire.
