Bushings of high performance plastics

The design concept behind every iglide® plastic bushing is to reduce costs and increase service life by eliminating the need for oil and maintenance and offering an exceptionally low wear rate.

iglide® plastic bushings from igus® represent the next step up from a basic plastic bushing to a tested-and-proven, predictable machine component.

iglide® plain bearings can be sorted as follows:

iglide® plain bearing materials

We categorized the materials into application groupings in order to simplify the introduction to the world of iglide® materials and to provide an initial orientation. The respective group assignment points to the outstanding properties of an iglide® material. However, this can frequently not be done without overlap, since a material is generally characterized by several core properties. For example, the material iglide® A500 is assigned to the application grouping of FDA compliant materials. At the same time this material is also rated for a long-term service temperature of 482°F.
The substances contained in all iglide® materials comply with the requirements of Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS 2).

iglide® 16 standard materials

16 standard materials for (almost) any area of use – from the food to the automotive industries – find, calculate and order the best bearing.

At least 113 dimensions in each material for shaft diameters of up to 50 mm

DIN ISO 3547 compliant (with the exception of iglide® M250)

Classics

You can use one of the five standards - iglide® G, L280, 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 (iglide® M250) up to ambient conditions that include contact with chemicals and 482°F (iglide® T500). iglide 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 iglide® 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 4,351 to far beyond 14,500 PSI (14,500 psi corresponds to 2,205 lb on a bushing of 10 mm x 10 mm).
