Antistatic material for ESD compatible applications

Antistatic material for ESD compatible applications

Igus has introduced a universal plain bearing material that helps prevent the build-up of electrostatic charges. Being electrically conductive, any electrostatic charge is safely discharged avoiding sparking, and like all other iglidur materials, the bearings are self-lubricating and require no maintenance. The ESD-compatible iglidur F2 plain bearings are suitable for use in wet conditions, in addition to numerous applications including material handling, automation and electronics manufacturing.  

The iglidur F2 plain bearings demonstrate good wear and media resistance, and can operate over a wide range of temperatures from –40°C to +120°C, with short term use at +165°C. The maximum moisture absorption is a low 0.2% (weight) at 23°C and 50%RH. The bearings also have a good resistance to chemicals and most lubricants.
