Tribo-Plastic Bearings Offer Enhanced Functionality

The material makes the clip and flanged bearings highly elastic, and chemical and moisture resistant.

Igus 2

igus (East Providence, RI) has developed a new tribo-plastic material for clip and flanged bearings that is highly elastic, chemical resistant and withstands moisture. Additional features include:

  • Made of lubrication-free iglidur K230, they are easier to install in sheet metal feedthroughs.
  • Frequently used in reducing friction and noise in car seats and other applications that require high flexibility and durability.
  • Used in humid environments and applications where temperatures reach up to 266 degrees Fahrenheit.
