Composite bearings are normally produced with sintered bronze between the polymer coating and the metallic substrate, omitting the bronze layer would reduce complexity. Thermal impact welded metal-polymer composite specimen without bronze are shaped to U-half shells to test them tribologically. Wear rates and friction coefficient are measured. The effects of the shaping are examined by surface analysis. Beside those shaping effects the heat balance is a very important influencing parameter.
