What the iglidur® high-performance polymers can do

The iglidur® plastic plain bearings are not only cost-effective but also maintenance-free, lubrication-free and versatile. They are available either from the extensive standard parts range from stock or as a custom-made component – with no minimum order quantity! For more than 30 years, igus® has been manufacturing plain bearings from RoHS-compliant high-performance polymers while developing new materials. All plain bearing types undergo extensive testing and their service life can be calculated using free online tools.
The more precisely you know the requirements for your desired plain bearing or component, the easier it is to find the right iglidur® material. In order to convince yourself of the performance of the iglidur® plastic plain bearings, we can cost-effectively produce individual prototypes or provide you with free samples.
