This heavy-duty plastic bushing can withstand radial loads up to 11,023 lb/in.2. These injection-molded self-lubricating and maintenance-free iglide® Q2 bushings are made from a new material blend. Initial testing has shown that they will perform up to five times better than any other plastic bearing material from this manufacturer when pivoting under the above radial load. The bushing’s high-wear resistance and low chance of deformation means a long service life for heavy-duty pivoting applications.
