Self-Lubricating Effect for Plastic Bearings

Features of iglide® plastic bushings

The Self-Lubricating Effect

base polymer with fibers and solid lubricants

iglide self lubricating bearings and bushings

The traditional solution

  • The base plastics are crucial for wear resistance
  • Fibers and filling materials reinforce the bushing so that it can withstand high forces or edge loads
  • Solid lubricants automatically lubricate the bushings and reduce friction in the system.
