iglidur Q2 maintenance-free, heavy-duty bearing from igus

05 October 2011

Polymer researcher and bearings specialist igus UK has introduced a new heavy-duty plastic plain bearing. The lubricant and maintenance-free iglidur Q2 bearing is made of a completely new tribological material mix that igus injection moulds into low-price polymer plain bearings. Depending on the shaft material used, iglidur Q2 performs between two and five times better than its standard catalogue polymer materials when used in pivoting applications at a radial load of 76 MPa.

Lubricant and maintenance-free iglidur Q2 plain bearing from igus UK for heavy-duty pivoting movements

“The lubricant and maintenance-free iglidur Q2 bearing pushes the limits of injection-moulded bearings even further,” says Matthew Aldridge of igus UK. “The combination of high wear-resistance and low deformation characteristics makes the iglidur Q2 ideal for heavy-duty pivoting movement.”
 
The new material can be used at temperatures from -40 to +200degC (+130 degrees for continuous operation).
