Flexible and media-resistant: New iglide® K230 material

Specially for clip bearings, flanged bearings and other special types

The newly developed iglide® K230 material is especially suitable for all kinds of iglide® clip bearings and flanged bearings. Just as formable as previous iglide® solutions, the new material is characterized by considerably lower moisture absorption and higher resistance to media and temperature extremes, while simultaneously displaying improved friction and wear behavior.

High degree of flexibility for clip bearing and flanged bearing designs

Low humidity absorption

High media resistance

High temperature resistance
