Self-Lubricating Metal Repair System

A ceramic filled epoxy-based composite for metal repair and erosion and corrosion protection
belzona 1131

Belzona 1131 (Bearing Metal) is a 100% solids pastegrade repair system with self-lubricating properties for creating low-friction surfaces subject to intermittent contact and low specific loads.

This fully machinable product can be applied without the need for specialist tools and bonds to virtually any surface including steel, aluminium, copper, fibreglass laminate, stainless steel, glass, concrete and brass.

Belzona 1131 has a unique microporous structure to trap and hold lubricating oil, minimising friction at start up. It also reduces risk of seizure in the event of lubrication starvation.

It does not expand, contract or distort during cure and has excellent electrical insulation properties

Key Benefits:

  • Protection of equipment from wear and seizure
  • Reduction of friction at start up
  • Reduced health and safety risks as it is solvent-free
  • Simple mixing ratio
  • Application and cure at room temperature – no hot work involved
  • No shrinkage, expansion or distortion
  • Can be easily applied in thick or thin sections in one operation allowing rapid return to service
  • High mechanical strength and heat resistance
  • Excellent bonding to almost any rigid surface including steel, aluminium, copper, stainless steel, brass, cast iron and many more

Applications for Belzona 1131 (Bearing Metal) include:

  • Rebuilding of worn shafts at bearing locations
  • Repair and efficiency increase of mechanical equipment including pump rotating elements
  • Repair and creation of plain bearings
  • Creation of bushings
  • Sliding low friction wear layers for pipe supports
