This depends on your definition of a heavy load. What the term ‘heavy loads’ means depends on the point of view. In general, plastics are not nearly as strong as steel and similar materials. Nevertheless, there are iglidur materials that have proven their worth at load bearing points with loads above 150 MPa (approximate load of 6 t on a plain bearing with a diameter of 20 mm and length of 20 mm).
