The ELGOTEX range of INA low friction, maintenance-free plain bushes from Schaeffler, is ideally suited to dry-running applications, including high load, high vibration environments. With their entwined double-layer design, each bush comprises two layers of wound material. The inner, sliding layer is made from synthetic fibres and PTFE fibres in epoxy resin, whilst the outer layer comprises continuous glass fibres in epoxy resin. This combined, double wound material is stabilised by applying a specific winding angle to the glass fibres, which significantly increases the strength of the bush. This results into extreme robustness, compactness and low wear.
