igubal® bearing elements can be used without problems even in harsh environments and are maintenance-free. They are corrosion-resistant in humid environments. The operating temperature is from -30°C to +80°C. Seals are not necessary, even in extremely contaminated conditions. This is true for fine dust as well as coarse dirt.
Every year, igus® engineers develop more than 100 new plastic compounds and conduct more than 3500 tests on maintenance-free plain bearings every year, and thus over the years has established a large database of polymers' tribological properties.
Despite high installation costs, the solution with ball bearings and shrink tubing never achieved a proper sealing. The problem could be solved thanks to igubal® flange bearings.
