Multilayer Sliding Member and Method for Manufacturing Multilayer Sliding Member
Provided are a multilayer sliding member capable of being efficiently manufactured at a low cost and having little dimensional change with respect to being used with high loads, and manufacturing technology for same. A binder (5) is applied to a surface (21) of a metal plate (2) that is the backing material. Furthermore, aprepreg (3), formed by drying a woven cloth after the same is impregnated with a phenolic resin, is layered thereupon, and a sliding layer that was forcibly plastically deformed is formed on the surface (21) of the metal plate (2) by thermal curing the layered body while applying pressure with a force greater than the maximum anticipated load during use. A metal powder sintered layer (4) may also be formed on the surface (21) of the metal plate (2). Here, a thermosetting resin (such as a low-viscosity phenolic resin, or an epoxy resin) having a low viscosity and a high affinity with the phenolic resin used in the prepreg (3) is used in the binder (5).
