Product description
iglide® H | High temperature and chemical resistance
  • Can be used underwater
  • For high temperatures
  • Resistant to chemicals
  • Lubrication and maintenance-free
  • Standard range from stock
iglide® H is a fiber-reinforced thermoplastic material especially developed for applications in high atmospheric humidity or under water. Bearings made from iglide® H can be used completely free of lubrication; in wet applications, the surrounding media acts as additional lubricant. Suitable for temperatures up to +392 °F. Very low coefficients of friction when used with hardened shafts.

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.
