iglidur® G

4

iglidur® Z

5

Brass with initial lubrication

6

Rolled metal with gliding layer

Conclusion:

all tested iglidur® materials exhibit significantly lower wear than metal plain bearings

the shafts of the metal plain bearings exhibit significant wear and are therefore unsuited for further use
