This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) covers plain spherical bearings which are self-aligning and self-lubricating by utilizing polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) in a fabric composite or molded material that is bonded to the inner diameter surface of the race and when specified, to the bore diameter surface of the ball. These bearings are for use in the temperature range -65 to +325 °F (-54 to +163 °C).
Rationale: The purpose of the revision is to ensure it reflects many of the changes current underway for AS81934 standard, and capture some of the comments from AS14101 ? AS14104 ballot review. The group wishes to keep each of these standards consistent.
