Bunting Bearings is the premiere name in the niche of environmentally-friendly bearing and cast bar solutions and supplies leading producers of sustainable energy, marine, medical and other commercial products with high quality bronze bushings and cast bars. Our eco-friendly alloy C87850 ECO Bronze is RoHS compliant and meets the lead-free safe drinking water act. The main difference between our ECO BRONZE and other lead-free alternatives is that ECO BRONZE is a great bearing material.
Other materials compromise their bearing properties to become lead-free, but ECO BRONZE has proved to be as good as, and in some cases superior to, the leaded material it has replaced.
ECO BRONZE is probably the most tested lead-free bronze material to-date; Bunting Bearings and Chase Brass had this material arduously tested by various independent laboratories in the USA, and all came to the same conclusion: “it’s tough,” “non-galling,” “does not get brittle at high temperatures,” “superior impact and compressive strength,” and “a great bearing material. Eco Bronze has gained acceptability in the potable water pump industry as it is S3874 & AB1953 compliant, it’s also gained acceptance in other industries such as construction equipment, Wind tower, food processing, medical devices and many others due to its great bearing properties.
By incorporating ECO BRONZE into your manufacturing supply chain, your business can easily reach its sustainability goals. Being environmentally responsible is a goal that Bunting, Chase Brass and most of our customers share. By specifying a green product such as ECO BRONZE in lieu of a traditional leaded material you have taken a significant step forward. Furthermore, by leading your company with the procurement change your employees can take note and find additional ways for your business to decrease its environmental footprint. Selecting eco-friendly bronze products is just the start – how else does your facility plan to increase sustainability this year?
