Extreme resistance to wear for soft shafts was previously limited to application temperatures up to approx. 130 °C. Igus has now developed the material iglidur V400. This compound of materials opens up the application range up to 200 °C. Due to their higher elasticity, these bearings are also suitable for applications with vibrations and edge loads.
V400 is insensitive to chemicals and is distinguished by minimum water absorption. Like all igus plain bearings, iglidur V400 is maintenance-free and non-corrosive.
