New iglide F2 ESD bearing material available from igus2/5/2016

Uncontrolled static discharges may negatively affect electronic components, can hinder production processes, or even contribute to fire risk. In certain industries, such as textile manufacturing, particles and flying debris are attracted by statically charged bearings and cling to them, causing expensive maintenance work and system downtime. Now, in applications where ESD properties are required, the self-lubricating iglide F2 EDS bearing material is now available.

iglide F2 contributes to continuous active discharge of electrostatic charges. The low surface resistance, which ranges between 103 and 109 Ω depending on component geometry reduces the charging voltage level, and contributes to the depletion of the charge.

In order to secure maximum design flexibility, igus offers the iglide F2 material in 14 bearing diameters, as well as machinable bar stock.

Like all iglide bearing materials, the ESD iglide F2 material is self-lubricating, maintenance-free, and has been tested and engineered to possess excellent wear properties. iglide F2 is also extremely resistant to dust and debris, and stands up to high loads and speeds.
