Thrust washer bearings by igus®

Thrust washer bearings are flat bearings that are typically inserted between a rotating component and a stationary component, and function to keep the rotating component in place by providing it with something to rub up against if it begins to move laterally. igus® thrust washer bearings are made from self-lubricating iglide® materials that promote maintenance-free, dry operation for a wide range of applications and axial load requirements. All of our iglide® materials are rigorously tested within our 41,000 sq. ft. laboratory to ensure long service life and high wear-rates, especially within highly-corrosive or harsh environments where typical metal thrust washer bearings would corrode and fail, causing unplanned downtime.
