Product description
iglide® N54 | The biopolymer based on renewable resources
  • Based on renewable resources
  • Universal use
  • Lubrication and maintenance-free
  • Standard range from stock
iglide® N54 is the first iglide® material based largely on biopolymers. In addition to the proven self-lubricating properties of all iglide® materials, this is one further contribution to positive environmental stewardship. The good coefficients of friction in conjunction with long life ensure that this material has a permanent place in the iglide® product range.

Tolerances and measurement system
The installation dimensions and tolerances of the iglide® plain bearings are a function of the material and wall thicknesses. For each material, the moisture absorption and the thermal expansion are imperative. Plain bearings with low moisture absorption can be designed with a minimal amount of tolerance. For wall thickness, the rule is: The thicker the bearings are, the larger the tolerances must be.
Testing methods
iglide® bearings are press-fit bearings. The inner diameter adjusts only after press-fit in the proper housing bore with a recommended tolerance. The before press-fit oversized dimension can be up to 2% of the inner diameter. In this manner, the secure press-fitting of the bearing is achieved. Axial or radial shifts in the housing are also prevented.
