ZEDEX® 410 family

The most precise – up to 180 °C

ZX-410® is a material with excellent technical properties and an extremely favorable price/performance ratio. ZX-410® has the 2nd best PV-value at 10m/min-after ZX-750V5T®– and the highest long-term compressive strength (10’000h) of a unreinforced polymer among the ZEDEX® materials.

The E-modulus is pretty constant up to 180°C and its CTE is low. The modification ZX-410V7T® has practically the same aluminium’s CTE allowing e.g. a constant clearance in applications with a smart design. Its low toxicity of combustion gases makes it suitable also for environments with high safety requirements.

When to use the family ZX-410® ?

  • With high temperature fluctuations
    (for this modification ZX-410V7T® optimal)
  • At very high surface pressures
  • At high pv values at medium speeds

When is the ZX-410® family not suitable?

  • If low water absorption is required (e.g. the family ZX-530® as alternative)
  • Low fatigue strength (e.g. the family ZX-324® as alternative)
  • If very little wear and friction is required
    (e.g. ZX-410VMT® as alternative)
