    BIV-LUB® is able to take high loading combined with a low abrasion rate

Range of application

  • Construction machines, crane construction, agriculture machines, automotive industry


  • BIV-LUB® is a maintenance-free bushing with embedded solid lubricants, but an initial lubrication for the “running-in process” is necessary. SBS advices for an aging resistant lithium stiffened grease.

Mounting advise

  • Housing: Chamfer min. 1.5 mm x 15-45°, for easy bushing alignment
  • Shaft: Chamfer 5 mm x 15°, for easy insertion of the shaft
  • SBS advises to use a force fitting mandrel for the installation of the bushing. It might be necessary to apply some grease on the outer surface of the bushing when press fitting it into the housing.
  • Gluing: Adhesive should not contact the sliding surface!
