  • Which ball bearing... ABEC, ILQ, WHAT IS GOOD?
    GeneralThe ABEC specification is a standard from the USA, with which the accuracy of the bearings is specified there.What is not regulated by this standard are e.g. B. the materials and the greasing.However, these two parameters are much more important for the use of ball bearings when skating.It is possible to import a cheap industrial ball bearing with ABEC 9 stamping for a few cents.You can also skate with it, but the recommendation is to buy branded products where the manufacturer makes sure that the parameters are chosen appropriately for our sport. In this way, an ABEC 1 bearing can be faster than the ABEC 9 bearing. ILQ – what does that mean? ILQ is a modified standard bearing type in which only 6 balls are used instead of the usual 7 balls.However, ILQ does not help to compare the quality. It is easily possible to change from ILQ to standard bearings or vice versa. The dimensions of the bearings are identical.

  • How do you clean ball bearings?

  • Do you have to grease ball bearings? Can you do without?
    Metal ball bearings Metal ball bearings must be lubricated. Without lubrication, these bearings would otherwise rust very quickly and become deformed during use due to the high frictional forces and the lack of cooling, which in the worst case could lead to the bearing becoming blocked. Lubrication is essential, especially with sealed ball bearings, otherwise the plastic or rubber seals will become porous. This can cause grease to escape and cause the bearing to run dry. Stainless steel ball bearings do not corrode, but they are significantly more expensive to buy than plastic ball bearings. Plastic ball bearings Without it works, for example, with lubricant-free ball bearings made of plastic. Unlike with metal, the high speeds of over 5,000 rpm cannot be achieved, but only a few applications rotate at such increased speeds. Most applications typically run at low loads and speeds. Plastic ball bearings are always impressive when they are used in liquid media such as water or chemicals. Ceramic ball bearings Another lubricant-free alternative is ball bearings made of technical ceramics. Ceramic materials are generally very resistant to wear, corrosion and temperature. In addition, they are light, stiff and electrically insulating - all properties that are very advantageous for applications with rolling bearings. Despite the significantly higher costs compared to metallic materials, such technical ceramics as silicon nitride, silicon carbide and aluminum oxide have long been established as ball bearing materials. In many cases, precisely for cost reasons, they have so far only been used in areas of application in which the advantages of ceramics really come into play and buyers are not put off by the higher procurement costs.1 1 Source: https: //
  • Why do certain roller skates have heels?
