Self-lubricating and maintenance free
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.
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.
The universal bearings are currently available in two types, a cylindrical sleeve and with a flange, with six standard internal diameters and lengths ranging from 6mm to 20mm. Other standard sizes can be requested.
