For iglide® H370 plastic bushings in dry operation against a steel shaft, at 68° F.
iglide® H370 is an advanced development of the iglide® H series. The material is characterized by particularly low water absorption and clearly enhanced wear resistance. With regard to the mechanical and thermal characteristic values, iglide® H370 shows the same features as iglide® H.
iglide® H370 is an extremely temperature-resistant material. With a short-term permitted maximum temperature of 464° F, the iglide® H370 plastic bushings can in otherwise unloaded condition be subjected for instance, to a paint drying process. With increasing temperatures, the compressive strength of iglide® H370 plastic bushings decreases. Fig. 14.3 clarifies this connection.
The temperatures prevailing in the bushing system also have an influence on the bushing wear. The wear rises with increasing temperatures.
iglide® H370 loses about 75% of its compressive strength with a rise in temperature range, from room temperature to 302° F. In contrast the increase in wear is hardly noticeable in the same temperature range.

|Upper, long-term||+ 392 °F|
|Upper, short-term||+ 464 °F|

The coefficients of friction and wear in iglide® H370 are more favorable than in iglide® H. There is no better material than iglide® H370 especially for underwater applications. The coefficient of friction alters only little, like the wear resistance with increasing load and surface speed. This connection illustrates the excellent suitability of iglide® H370 plastic bushings with high loads.
Friction and wear also depend to a high degree on the reverse partner. Very smooth shafts increase the coefficient of both friction and wear. The ideally suited is a ground surface with an average roughness range of 8 - 16 rms.

The diagrams display a summary of the results of tests with different shaft materials conducted with bushings made of iglide® H370.
For loads up to 290 psi, the hard-chromed shaft is the best counter partner for the iglidur® H370 plastic bushings in rotating applications. The high wear values for 303 Stainless shafts, which have a tendency to stick-slip because of their very smooth surfaces. The HR Carbon Steel shaft has better rotational values than Cold Rolled Steel starting at 290 psi.
On the other hand, for oscillating movements, the 303 Stainless Steel shaft has a clear superiority. As the diagram shows, it generates, at 290 psi, a lower wear by the factor of 11 than the Cold Rolled Steel shaft.

iglide® H370 plastic bushings have a good resistance against chemicals. They are resistant to most lubricants. The iglide® is not affected by most weak organic and inorganic acids.
The moisture absorption of iglide® H370 plastic bushings is about 0.1% in standard climatic conditions. The saturation limit in water is likewise below 0.1%. iglide® H370 is therefore the best suited bushing material for underwater applications.
H370 withstands both the neutron and gamma particle radiations without noticeable loss to its excellent mechanical properties. iglide® H370 plastic bushings are radiation resistant up to a radioactive intensity of 2 x 10² Gy.
iglide® H370 plastic bushings are permanently resistant against UV rays.
Water elements are degassed in the vacuum. Due to the low water absorption, an application in the vacuum is however possible.
iglide® H370 plastic bushings are electrically conductive.
