To find the ideal iglidur® material for a manufacturer of high-end mountain bike pedals, we received different shafts of titanium and chrome molybdenum steel, as well as bearings of a competitor. On this basis we tested our iglidur® plain bearings in the iglidur® laboratory.
The trials were executed under the following test parameters:
Shafts: Titanium, chromoloy steel
Load: 4.53 MPa
Slide speed: 0.03 m/s
