1. A method of manufacturing a swash plate for a swash plate type compressor in which the swash plate is mounted directly to a rotary shaft or indirectly to the rotary shaft through a coupling member so as to be oblique to or perpendicular to the rotary shaft in a housing in which a refrigerant exists, and in which the swash plate is in sliding contact with shoes such that the rotary motion of the swash plate is converted to reciprocating motion of pistons through the shoes, thereby compressing and expanding the refrigerant, the method comprising:
forming a substrate of the swash plate by pressing a rolled steel into a disk-shaped steel sheet;
forming sliding surfaces on both sides of the disk-shaped steel sheet by
firstly grinding side surfaces of the disk-shaped steel sheet to a flatness of 10 μm or less and a parallelism of 15 μm or less, and
subjecting the side surfaces to shot blasting;
forming low-friction resin coating layers on the sliding surfaces, respectively, without forming an intermediate metal coating layer between the substrate and the respective low-friction coating layers, by applying a coating material containing fluororesin, matrix resin, and graphite on the side surfaces of the disk-shaped steel sheet by spray coating and baking the thus applied coating material; and
secondly grinding the low-friction resin coating layers formed on the sliding surfaces of the disk-shaped steel sheet,
wherein the low-friction resin coating layers each have a thickness within a range of 8 to 30 μm,
wherein the fluororesin is polytetrafluoroethylene resin and constitutes 40-50% of each of the low-friction coating layers,
wherein the graphite is in the form of powder having a particle diameter of 30 μm or less,
wherein the matrix resin is polyamideimide resin,
wherein both side surfaces of the disk-shaped steel sheet are ground using a two-head grinding machine, and
wherein the side surfaces of the disk-shaped steel sheet are top side and bottom side surfaces, and wherein the firstly grinding and the secondly grinding are both performed by a driving type two-head grinding method in which the top side and bottom side surfaces of the disk-shaped steel sheet are simultaneously ground with grinders while rotating the disk-shaped steel sheet with its center held in position.
