Our team has extensive experience in supplying industry with quality bushings and can assist you in supplying standard or custom bushings for your intended application.

Bronze Bushes

Kormax’s plain bronze bearings, also known as bronze sleeve bushings, are manufactured from continuous cast bronze, conforming to AS1565 grade C83600 (BS1400 LG2). Progressive sizes are available in imperial and metric sizes, however Kormax can also manufacture bronze bushings to your specific size and tolerance requirements.

Some advantages of bronze bushings include excellent corrosion resistance, the ability to operate at high temperatures, ease of machinability, excellent surface finishes, high dimensional precision, resistance to metal fatigue, cost-effectiveness, and sustainability. Due to these properties, bronze bushings are often employed in ship propellers, pumps, small electric motors, agricultural machinery, earth moving machinery, and other industries.
