Product description
iglidur® AX500 | Conductive material for high temperatures and food contact
  • Compliant with EU Regulation 10/2011 EC
  • Temperature-resistant from -100 °C to +250 °C
  • High chemical resistance

 iglidur AX500 is a further development of iglidur A500, a long-term endurance material. The special feature of AX500 is that it is a conductive material . In addition, AX500 has an even lower coefficient of wear than its predecessor. The material was developed especially for the food industry and can therefore be used in contact with food without any problems.

Tolerances and measuring system
The installation dimensions and tolerances of the iglidur® plain bearings depend on the material and wall thickness. For each material, the moisture absorption and the thermal expansion are decisive factors. Plain bearings with low moisture absorption can be installed with a smaller bearing clearance. The rule for wall thickness: the thicker the wall of the bearings, the larger the clearances must be.
Testing methods

iglidur® plain bearings are press-fit bearings. The inner diameter is only adjusted to the appropriate tolerance after pressing into the housing hole. The press-fit excess dimension can be up to 2% of the inner diameter. This ensures the secure press-fitting of the bearings. Axial or radial movements in the housing are thus reliably avoided.
