Product description
iglidur® R | Low-cost material, low coefficients of friction

In the development of iglidur® R as plain bearing material, high performance and very low price were the focus. Especially in the dry operation, low coefficient of friction and wear were to be achieved. Plain bearings made from iglidur® R are supported by a combination of solid lubricants. The PTFE and silicon-free material achieves extremely low coefficient of friction in dry operation and runs largely free of stick-slip effects.

Tolerances and measuring system
The installation dimensions and tolerances of the iglidur® plain bearings depend on the material and wall thickness. For each material, the moisture absorption and the thermal expansion are decisive factors. Plain bearings with low moisture absorption can be installed with a smaller bearing clearance. The rule for wall thickness: the thicker the wall of the bearings, the larger the clearances must be.
Testing methods

Assembly
iglidur® plain bearings are press-fit bearings. The inner diameter is only adjusted to the appropriate tolerance after pressing into the housing hole. The press-fit excess dimension can be up to 2% of the inner diameter. This ensures the secure press-fitting of the bearings. Axial or radial movements in the housing are thus reliably avoided.
