iglidur® L350: New material in test for ventilators, fans, and motors

With iglidur® L350 igus®, has developed an extremely durable material which, thanks to its coefficients of friction and wear is ideally suited for use in electric motors, fans and household appliances. Among other things, the coefficient of friction and the degree of rotational wear were tested in a high-speed test rig. In the test, the new material was tested and compared to classic metallic and polymer plain bearings. Developed for optimum coefficients of friction and wear at speeds of 1.5 m/s and more, iglidur® L350 considerably outperforms competing bearings in fast rotational applications. With a 50% lower price as compared to the iglidur® L500, it is also a significantly more cost-effective alternative.
