igus bearings are available in a variety of polymer materials, each with different properties and the company can custom-design a bearing for almost any application.

igus polymer materials are composed of a base polymer, fibres and filling material and a solid lubricant. The type of polymer material used determines the bearing's properties; for example, its resistance to temperature extremes or chemicals as well as the life of the product.

The polymer bearings are entirely lubricant free.Where there is surfaceto- surface contact, or any sliding motion, the solid lubricant is always present, making the polymer bearing entirely self-lubricating.

This tribological technology is used throughout the igus bearing range, including the iglidur plain bearings, xiros ball bearings, igubal spherical bearings, PRT slewing rings and DryLin linear systems.
