New extreme bearing material

New extreme bearing material Igus has unveiled a new ‘extreme’ polymer material: Iglidur Z510. This material compound has been developed by Igus to meet the combined requirements of applications demanding permanently high operating temperatures of 260°C with those needing high pressure resistance and dimensional stability. Thanks to its high pressure resistance and elasticity, Iglidur Z510 can handle particularly heavy loads, even while pivoting and with additional edge loads. Engineers carry out more than 5,000 tests annually in the Igus laboratories and test more than 100 new materials. It was during one of these tests that the new material really showed what it can do. In rotational tests, Iglidur Z510 stood up to permanent loads much higher than the 100MPa Igus felt it could cope with, while in continuous motion. The display finally showed 300MPa, which makes applications for high performance, maintenance-free bearings possible on truck tail lifts for the very first time. The new bearing material is also extremely resistant to chemicals and is characterised by low water absorption. As with all other Igus polymer bearings, Iglidur Z510 is maintenance and corrosion-free, and can be supplied immediately on request.
