Bushings of high performance plastics

Lower costs and raise service life by eliminating lubrication and lowering maintenance works, everything delivered from stock immediately - that is the core idea iglidur® polymers are tested in abrasion, friction and other material properties. They built the technological core of the igus® products. Polymer plain bushings from igus® signifies the step from the plastic bushing to the proven and tested, and thereby calculable and quickly available, machine element.

iglidur® plain bearings can be sorted as follows:

iglidur® plain bearing materials

We categorized the materials into application groupings in order to simplify the introduction to the world of iglidur® materials and to provide an initial orientation. The respective group assignment points to the outstanding properties of an iglidur® material. However, this can frequently not be done without overlap, since a material is generally characterised by several core properties. For example, the material iglidur® A500 is assigned to the application grouping of FDA compliant materials. At the same time this material also also rated for a long-term service temperature of 250°C.
The substances contained in all iglidur® materials comply with the requirements of Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS 2).

Classics

You can use one of the five standards - iglidur® G, W300, J, X, and M250 - for almost all applications with non-lubricated, dry-running bushings. Together they cover a huge range from extremely dirt-accumulating applications (iglidur® M250) up to ambient conditions that include contact with chemicals and 250°C (iglidur® X). iglidur® G is the best decathlete that is a cut above the average in almost all disciplines. In total there are more than 2000 dimensions immediately available from stock. For all those who want to find a suitable bearing with little effort, for the "casual buyer" and for all those who place value on the greatest possible variety of dimensions from a quantity of 1 piece.

Applications with high loads

The iglidur® specialists for high loads, high wear resistance combines with the ability to withstand high (static) loads, shock and edge loads. As part of these properties, they all come with their own particular strengths. High loads mean radial surface pressures from 30 to far beyond 100 MPa (100 MPa corresponds to 1000 kg on a bushing of 10 mm x 10 mm).
