ZX-410 Family

Base type ZX-410

Low cost, stiff, precise up to 180 °C
ZX-410 is a plain bearing material with excellent technical properties and an extremely favourable price/performance ratio. ZX-410 is a thermoplastic compound with the following specific characteristics.

  • Up to 180 °C hard, stiff, tough

  • Mechanical properties, wear and PV-value better than the PEEK´s ones

  • High dimensional stability

  • High chemical resistance

  • High hydrolysis resistance, except with basic substances

  • Very high UV and y radiation resistance

  • Fame resistant (low toxicity of flue gases)

  • Resistance to stress cracking

  • Good machinability

  • Cheaper than PEEK

  • UV-radiation: (1000 hours Xenon DIN 53597) Tensile strength: –43%

  • Gamma-radiation: Limit absorbed dose 9000 kGy

  • Chemicals, resistant: Mineral acids, salt solutions, aqueous alkali pH< 9, alcohols, ethers, sulfuric acid 50 %

  • Chemicals, unstable: Ketones, chloroform, MEK, ethyl acetate, methylene dichloride, trichloroethane, hydraulic oil, dichloromethane

  • Lubricants and fuels: limited resistance

  • Water: max. water absorption: 0,6 %, dimensional changes: 0,25 %, Up to 125 °C resistant

  • Fire behavior: oxygen index (LOI): 47 %, classification: V-0 (UL94), low flue gas emission

Operational parameters*
  • Temperature (T): –70°C to +180°C (+200°C)

  • Surface pressure (p): Max. 48 (142) MPa

  • Sliding speed (v): Max. 100 m/min

  • Fatigue (S): tensile fatigue strength at 20°C
    and 1E06 stress cycles, 1 Hz = 33 MPa
    Impacts, vibrations, edge loading, gamma rays in hot and cold water.
