iglidur H3

Tough, wear-resistant, durable

iglidur H3 - even more robust and durable than comparable materials

H3 is a new material in the iglidur H family. H3 sets new standards with its outstanding robustness. This material is more robust than comparable materials and has a longer service life than iglidur H1. The iglidur H3 material was primarily developed for use in pumps and problematic media, and is especially advantageous here due to its low moisture absorption.

Tech up

Tech up

  • Greatest elongation at break in the family of iglidur H materials
  • More wear-resistant as plain bearing material than iglidur H1
  • Low moisture absorption
  • Resistant to many chemicals

Cost down

Cost down

  • Maintenance-free properties reduce costs for lubrication and maintenance
  • iglidur H3 achieves a higher running performance than iglidur H1 in many applications
  • More cost-effective than comparable metallic bearings



In the test, the wear of iglidur H1 and iglidur H3 was investigated during rotation, p= 1 MPa, v= 0.3 m/s.
Wear test with V2A shaft

  • iglidur H1: 0.17 μm/km
  • iglidur H3: 0.11 μm/km
Wear test with X90 shaft
  • iglidur H1: 0.17 μm/km
  • iglidur H3: 0.16 μm/km

Ecoflow pump with iglidur plain bearings

Wear in dosing pumps kept to a minimum

We have developed iglidur H3 plain bearings for this purpose:

In this Ecoflow dosing pump, iglidur plain bearings are used in the driving mechanism of the pump, where their properties minimise the wear on the piston rod pins.
From simple linear movements to fast rotating applications in the medium in question, the iglidur plain bearings used in pumps and other areas of fluid technology  are highly wear-resistant and abrasion-resistant.  Moreover, they are resistant to chemicals and high temperatures

Our expert will explain the advantages of iglidur H3 plain bearings
