iglidur® TX2 - new fabric bushings made of high-strength filament fabric

The new iglidur® TX2 plain bushings were developed for use in particularly highly loaded bearing locations. Due to its incorporated solid lubricants, the high-strength, wound construction ensures for a low-friction and maintenance-free operation - entirely without external lubrication.   

Tech up

Tech up

  • Particularly low wear in the heavy-duty area
  • Up to 3.5 times more wear-resistant than iglidur TX1

Cost down

Cost down

  • Maintenance-free properties reduce costs for lubrication and maintenance
  • Cost-effective even in high dimensions and low volumes



  • Tested in our own test rigs inside and outside.
  • Test parameters: 50°pivoting movement, shaft Cf53 hard-chrome, p = 100N/mm², v = 0.01m/s



  • Environmentally friendly as no additional lubricants needed
  • Good coefficient of wear and therefore a long service life

Bearings in dirty environments

For especially high loads

This is what we have developed iglidur TX2 plain bearings for:

Where injection-moulded plain bearings fail due to extreme mechanical loads, wound bushings play to their strengths. The extremely strong filament allows for maximum resistance with its special, interwoven design. At the same time, no additional grease lubrication is required thanks to the incorporated lubricants.  
iglidur TX2 fabric bushings are particularly well-suited for agricultural machines and vehicles, the construction industry and mining. Wherever there are high loads, and corrosion-free and dirt-resistant bearings are required.  

What are iglidur® materials made of?

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.

Base polymers

iglidur base polymers

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.  

Fibres and fillers

iglidur base polymers with fibres

These components strengthen the materials so that they withstand high forces or edge loads and can be used continuously.  

Solid lubricants

USP picture

They lubricate components made of iglidur materials independently and prevent friction. They are distributed in the entire material in the form of microscopic particles.
