Aluglide rod and main bearings were developed for OEM engines and have the inherent physical properties perfectly suited for replacement applications. The proprietary composition is comprised of aluminum, tin and silicon. This metallurgy mix, combined with a steel backing, provides excellent characteristics such as strength, anti-seizure, anti-wear, embeddability and anti-corrosion.
ACL rod and main bearings also are available in Duraglide metallurgy, our tried and true tri-metal configuration. Commonly referred to as coated bearings, they offer a high degree of friction reduction freeing up available horsepower and drastically extending the life of the engine by reducing wear.
Cam bearings are available as full round and clinched butt construction. ACL Bearings also produces Race Series bearings for performance engines.
In a relatively short time since its introduction, Aluglide engine bearings have become a dominant factor in engine bearing materials. The combination of aluminum, tin and silicon creates an alloy with exceptional wear resistance, outstanding strength and excellent load-carrying characteristics. Our OEM customers use Aluglide exclusively, and it is becoming "the bearing of choice" among many aftermarket engine builders and technicians.
