For iglide® Q2 plastic bushings with 0.03 inches (1 mm) wall thickness under dry running conditions against a steel shaft, at 68°F, installed into a steel housing.
iglide® Q2 plastic bushings stand for high load capacities and good abrasion resistance at high loads. Solid lubricants reduce the coefficient of friction and improve the resistance to wear, which was markedly improved as compared to other iglide® plastic bushings for high load pivoting applications. iglide® Q2 plastic bushings are self lubricating and suitable for any motion.
The graph shows the elasticity deformation of iglide® Q2 plastic bushings during radial loading. Plastic deformation can occur, this depends on the applied pressure.
The typical applications for iglide® Q2 plastic bushings are high load pivoting motions at comparatively low speeds. Independently of that, relatively high speeds are still attainable. The speeds shown in the table are threshold values for minimal bushing loads. As loads increase, the admissible speed is reduced with higher loads due to the limitations of the pv value.

iglide® Q2 is a very temperature resistant material. The short-term temperature exposure limit is at +428 °F. The long-term upper temperature limit of +266 °F permits the broad use in applications typical for the agricultural, utility vehicle or construction equipment fields. However, the pressure resistance of iglide® Q2 plastic bushings declines as temperatures increase. When considering temperatures, the additional frictional heat in the bushing system must be taken into account.
iglide® Q2 has a low coefficient of friction. Please note that a gliding partner with a rough surface finish will increase the friction. The highest coefficients of friction occur at 40 rms. For iglide® Q2 a ground surface with an average roughness range of 4 - 16 rms is recommended. Furthermore, the coefficient of friction of iglide® Q2 plastic bushings largely depends on the speed and load. As the speed increases, the coefficient of friction will quickly increase as well. However, as the load is reduced, the coefficient of friction initially drops significantly, then moderately.
|Coefficients of friction µ||0.06 - 0.21||0.09||0.04||0.04|
Generally, we recommend the use of hardened shafts for use in high load applications. Furthermore, even at low to medium loads, iglide® Q2 will attain increased service life with "hard" shafts as compared to "soft" shafts.
But for low load applications, the results are outstanding with free cutting steel as well. For high loads, the wear in pivoting applications is much lower than for rotations.

iglide® Q2 plastic bushings are standard bushings for shafts with tolerance h (minimum recommendation is h9).
The bushings are designed for press-fit in a housing with h7 tolerance. After the installation in a housing with nominal diameter, the inner diameter of the bushing automatically adjusts to the E10 tolerance.
