iglidur® bar stock HLW round bars

High resistance to temperature and chemicals

iglidur® HLW is a fibre-reinforced thermoplastic material especially developed for applications in high atmospheric humidity or under water. Plain bearings made from iglidur® HLW can be used completely free of lubrication; in wet applications, the surrounding media acts as additional lubricant. Suitable for temperatures up to +200°C. Very low coefficients of friction when used with hardened shafts.

cost down

Cost down

  • Approx. 50% more cost-effective than PEEK 
  • Fast and cost-effective machining for prototypes and small up to medium series requirements 



  • Approx. 50% more cost-effective than PEEK, with only approx. 35% higher wear on average (test: wear, rotating; t= 23°C, p= 1 MPa, v= 0.3 m/s)
  • Approx. 70% less wear, compared to PPS (test: wear, rotating; t= 23°C, p= 1 MPa, v= 0.3 m/s)
  • Up to 50% lower coefficient of friction compared to PEEK and PPS (coefficient of friction rotating; t= 23°C, p= 1 MPa, v= 0.3 m/s)



●    Made from 100% recycled material
●    No lubrication necessary
