Babbitts (white metals):

Composition: In this, there are two types. One is Lead-based Babbitt and the other is Tin-base babbitt.

Lead-Base Babbitt: Pb-74%, Sn-10%, Sb-15%, Others-1%

Tin-Base Babbitt:  Sn-86%, Sb-7%, Cu-6% , Pb-1%,


  1. They have excellent bondability, embeddability and conformability.
  2. They are good corrosion resistant.


Low compressive and fatigue strength at temperatures above 80 degrees.


Bearings with Babbitt material are used in light-duty applications.
