How does the wear develop when pivoting with increasing loads?

The wear comparison was carried out under the following test parameters:

Load: 1 & 2 MPa
Speed: 0,01 m/s
Shaft: Cf53 and V2A
Plain bearing materials: iglidur® J and iglidur® W300

Pivoting wear; p: 1 & 2 MPa; v: 0.01 m/s
iglidur® replaces metal composite bearings  

Test results:

In the igus® laboratories it was determined that the increase in the coefficient of wear of the iglidur® plain bearings doubled in low-load pivoting movement, but still remained significantly below the coefficient of wear of the sintered bushings.
