New Alecular Silicon


 

Preferred OE Material

Aluminum – Tin - Silicon

 

 

 

Wear resistance- the silicon particles help round off high spots on the crank surface during engine operation, which reduces friction and related wear.

 

Excellent control of wall variance- because the bearings are unplated, wall variances are reduced by as much as 40% less than tri-metal (over-plated copper lead) bearings.

 

Fatigue strengths dramatically improved- KING’s SI bearings easily exceed maximum peak load capacity for car and light duty applications.

 

Improved oil clearance tolerances- because of reduced wear, SI bearings make it possible to maintain OEM clearances over the life of the engine, which in turn reduces operating noise, vibration, and excess oil flow

 

O.E. preferred material- most O.E. engines today come fitted with SI bearings because of these advantages.

 

 

Outstanding service life- exceeds OEM engine durability of 150,000 miles

 

Superior temperature threshold- the melting/flaking point of the silicon bi-metal SI bearings is significantly superior to the older tri-metal design. This enables KING Engine Bearings to hold up under tough overheating conditions.

 

Exceptional corrosion resistance- defends against corrosion caused by unleaded fuels and moisture.

 

Minimized debris embedment- because SI bearings are unplated and bored, hard-particle debris is instantly flushed through the bearing and filtered out of engine rather than scoring the crankshaft and causing long term damage.

 

 

Cost Efficient- KING offers you 2 ways to save money

·        Reduced warranty claims due to bottom end failures

·        KING customers receive the best pricing (and quality) in the business

 

Environmentally safe- reduced lead content makes SI bearings environmentally friendly.
