A bearing element comprises a bearing element substrate (4) and a sliding layer (5) of a sliding layer material. The sliding layer material comprises a polymeric material and nanodiamonds. The nanodiamonds are surface-functionalised nanodiamonds, they comprise one or more functional groups selected from the group consisting of: hydrogen (-H), hydroxyl (-OH), carboxyl (-COOH), amino (-NH2) and nitro (02N). The nanodiamonds preferably have an average particle size of between about 1 nm and about 10nm. Preferably, the nanodiamonds are detonation produced nanodiamonds. The bearing element may be particularly suitable for automotive applications and may provide enhanced resistance to wear and fatigue.

A sliding element (20) comprises a first sliding element component (21) for sliding engagement with a rotatable component and a second sliding element component (22,23) for sliding engagement with a rotatable component. The first sliding element component is coupled to the second sliding element component by an adhesive (31). The adhesive is a flexible adhesive. A corresponding method of manufacturing the sliding element (20) comprising the steps of:- providing a first sliding element component (21) for supporting rotatable component; providing a second sliding element component (22,23) for supporting a rotatable component; applying a flexible adhesive (31) to the first sliding element component (21) and/or to the second sliding element component (22,23); bringing the first sliding element and the second sliding element component into engagement to form an assembly; allowing the flexible adhesive (31) to at least partially cure for a handling time so as to form a self-supporting sliding element or a flanged half-bearing or a flanged bush assembly.

A sliding engine component may include a substrate having a surface coated with a first electroplated metallic layer and a second electroplated metallic layer. The first metallic layer may be disposed between the substrate and the second metallic layer. The first metallic layer and the second metallic layer may have a grained structure. The grained structure of each of the first metallic layer and the second metallic layer may have an aspect ratio between a mean grain size perpendicular to the substrate surface and a mean grain size parallel to the substrate surface. The aspect ratio of the second metallic layer may be less than the aspect ratio of the first metallic layer.


Patent
