TÜV construction test

igus® e-chains® and E-Tubes are construction-tested by TÜV Rheinland. igus® EChains® were tested and passed by TÜV Rheinland in accordance with the valid machine guidelines.

As a result, the user of igus® e-chains® need not worry about meeting CE requirements through testing for this portion of the machinery. The construction test 2PFG 1036 / 10/97 for protective equipment includes the following:

Application and safety


fatigue strength

Resistance to external influences

Sharp corners and edges


Colour of igumid ESD products: similar to RAL7015, slate-grey to secure distinguishability with standard materials.
An e-chain® is not sufficient to ensure sufficient conductivity, if only the individual components exhibit conductivity, but the whole e-chain® from one end to the other must have a continuous conductivity.

IPA clean room

A lot of e-chains® are suitable for the use in cleanrooms according to DIN EN ISO 14644-1. Acknowledged by the IPA Fraunhofer Institut.


All igumid materials have UL approval. The material igumid NB has got the fire protection class approval IIb according to the test VDE 0304 Part 3/5.70, the approval V2 according UL 94 and the construction material class B2 according DIN 4102.

Interbus and DESINA

chainflex®- cables are produced according to a lot of international standards: For Interbus certification of certain CF11 bus cables.
