Laughs at acids and hydrogen peroxide

Plastic plain bearing made of the new “iglidur C210” material from igus GmbH, Cologne. The low-cost chemical bearing is lubricant-free, long life, and resistant to a wide range of acids, solvents and hydrogen peroxide.

Nov. 27, 2012 - PRLog -- Increasingly extreme cleaning cycles are being used in the drinks bottling, food processing and packaging industries, as well as in medical technology.

More new, aggressive or more highly concentrated chemicals are used in order to meet the demanding requirements of hygiene and cleanliness, and reduce machine downtime. For such applications, the polymer researcher and plain bearing specialist igus GmbH, Cologne, is currently working on the development of several different tailor-made materials.

The company presented a new low-cost chemical bearing at the Hanover Industrial Fair as the first result of this development work. As with all “iglidur” materials, the new tribo-polymer “iglidur C210” has been deigned for lubricant and maintenance-free use. This wear-resistant material is significantly more resistant to a wide range of acids, solvents and hydrogen peroxide than the majority of the 29 catalogue materials supplied by igus. The permanent application temperature is 100°C. A standard range of dimensions are available ex stock.

Lubricant-free and wear-resistant

Once again, igus has presented a material that is consistently aligned to the interests of plain bearing tribology coupled with specific requirements, in this case the resistance to media. The new plastic plain bearing “iglidur C210” offers “an excellent price-performance ratio, because it combines very low friction values with a very long service life and extreme chemical resistance,” explains the company.

This makes the bearing suitable  for applications such as the conveyor chains in bottle-cleaning machines, to give only one typical example.

Here and elsewhere in the drinks bottling, food processing and packaging industries, freedom from lubrication is important, combined with long service life and resistance to new chemicals in even higher concentrations.
