Since the application runtime of iglidur® Z required by a customer on a shaft made of 1.4034 steel could not be reached, we re-enacted this case in our test lab in order to find a more suitable iglidur® material.
These were shafts, such as those used by the customer, made from the material 1.4034. Then different plain bearings were tested against these shafts, in order to obtain a better combination with the shaft material.
The wear comparison was carried out under the following test parameters:Force: 25 MPa
Speed: 0.012 m/s
Runtime: 100 h
Plain bearing materials: iglidur® Z iglidur® J350 iglidur® P210, igus® development material, DU with PTFE layer
