Advanced material - improved UV resistance
Today, bearings appear not only in the form of simple bushings but also as special forms for special uses, in some instances of which they are exposed to UV radiation for long periods of time. igus® has therefore developed a new material: iglidur® J UV. The tribological properties such as friction and wear of the new black material are comparable to those of the very wear-resistant standard material iglidur® J. Initially, a range of standard bearings with and without flange for a shaft diameter of up to 20 mm will be available. Bearings made of iglidur® J UV are available upon request in all previous standard dimensions of iglidur® J as well as in individually designed special geometries.
