'EXTREME' bearing material iglidur Z510 is the first to combine applications demanding permanently high operating temperatures of 260°C, with high pressure resistance and dimensional stability.

Distributed in Australia by Treotham Trading , the product has high pressure resistance and elasticity.

iglidur Z510 can also take on particularly heavy loads, even while pivoting and with additional edge loads.

In several tests, the new material proved what it could do. During rotating tests the new material stood up to permanent loads of far more than 100MPa while in continuous motion - this is unique.

The loads were increased even more during pivoting movements. The challenge finally showed 300MPa, which makes applications for high-performance, maintenance-free bearings possible on truck tail lifts for the very first time, according to engineers in this sector.

The new bearing material is also extremely resistant to chemicals and is characterised by low water absorption.

Just like all other igus polymer plain bearings, iglidur Z510 is maintenance and corrosion-free and can be supplied immediately on request.
