A plain bearing made from recycled plastic has been introduced by motion plastics specialist igus. The iglide ECO P210 bearing is a chemical-resistant variant that is part of the company’s iglide ECO series.

The iglide ECO series is manufactured using regranulate made from the sprue and defective injection-moulded parts produced by igus. This allows the company to recycle plastic waste and reduce the amount of virgin plastic used in production.

The new iglide ECO P210 plain bearing has been designed for use in machines that regularly come into contact with chemicals. Potential applications include agitators, laboratory mills, filtration devices, and car washes. The bearing has a maximum recommended surface pressure of 50 MPa at room temperature and can operate between -40 °C to 100 °C. As with all the plain bearing materials from igus, it does not require external lubrication with oil or grease.

The ECO P210 is the fifth product in the iglide ECO family. Other materials available include ECO H, ECO P, ECO G, and ECO A180. According to igus, all ECO materials consist of at least 97% recycled plastic.

“Our in-house laboratory tests show that plain bearings made of regranulate provide almost the same performance as the conventional iglidur P210 series. They are similarly resistant to edge pressure, shocks and impacts with only slight concessions,” comments igus South Africa product manager: bearings Juan-Eric Davidtz.
