  • Up to 50 % better press fit than iglide® T500
  • High compressive strength
Product description
iglide® X6 | Runs up to six times longer than iglide® T500
  • Long term service temperature up to +482 °F
  • Up to 50 % better press fit than iglide® T500
  • High compressive strength
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • PTFE-free
  • Dry-running and maintenance-free
  • Standard range from stock
Due to nano-technology, iglide® X6 shows up to six times better performance than iglide® T500 in many oscillating and rotating applications – even at temperatures over +212 °F.

When to use it?
  • If temperatures are higher than +302 °F
  • When the wear performance of iglide® T500 in oscillation and rotation is not sufficient
  • If the press-fit should be improved over iglide® T500
  • If high media resistance is required
  • If you need a bearing which is free of PTFE
When not to use?
  • When you need a cost-effective universal bearing
  • If you need a bearing for underwater use
  • When a wear resistant high temperature bearing for linear movements is needed

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.
Certificates and standards
RoHS compliant
According to 2011/65/EU (RoHS 2)
