Babbitt metal is most commonly used as a surface layer in complex, multi-metal bearings. Its metal matrix composite structure is made up of small hard crystals dispersed in a softer metal matrix. Under its trade names, ECKA, TEGO and HOYT, our Babbitt alloys are produced with the utmost attention to quality and consistency using high purity raw materials. Our commitment to R&D is unprecedented as we continually work to enhance Babbitt metallurgy. We have recently launched ECKA-Lacomet, an advanced powder alloy used to laser clad bearings, resulting in operational savings for our customers.
