Extremely high compressive strength coupled with high elasticity enables iglidur® Z4 bearings to attain their prominent features in association with soft shafts, edge loads and impacts. At the same time, the bearings are suitable for temperatures up to +250°C. iglidur® Z4 was developed in particular for especially price-sensitive applications where the bearing material still had to meet high requirements.
All iglidur materials consist of three components: base polymers, fibres and fillers, solid lubricants, whereby the bearings made of iglidur materials are maintenance-free and lubrication-free. As it is not possible for one universal material to fulfil all tasks equally well, there are different iglidur materials. Each has a different composition of the three components and a different application area.
The base polymers are responsible for the iglidur materials' wear resistance. They ensure that the lubricants are not subjected to a surface pressure that is too high.
These components strengthen the materials so that they withstand high forces or edge loads and can be used continuously.
They lubricate components made of iglidur materials independently and prevent friction. They are distributed in the entire material in the form of microscopic particles.
