The iglide L500 plastic bearing material from igus is suited for continuous operation in high-speed rotation applications under low loads. The material combines high wear resistance in long-running, high-speed applications. Continuous rotational speeds of more than 16 ft/s (4.9 m/s) are possible, and the L500 material performs even under extreme environmental conditions, such as temperatures ranging from -148 to +482°F (-100 to +250°C), as well as media contact. The positive material properties of the iglide L500 enable the self-lubricating operation of electric motors, fans, and ventilators, where sintered bearings were previously used. The L500 material will also be available for the development and production of customer-specific bearing solutions.
