We offer various iglidur® coating materials whose properties make them especially well suited to particular applications and industries. The iglidur® polymer coatings are subjected to extensive testing in our test laboratory. Key benefits such as:
Send us your metallic component. We will coat it for you with our iglidur® high-performance polymer and send it back to you.
Order the coating powder directly from our online shop and coat your components yourself.
iglidur polymer coatings are subjected to extensive testing in our test laboratory. Therefore, they fulfil their promise in real life:
►very good mechanical properties ►excellent wear and sliding properties ►accurate in every detail with exact surfaces ►self-lubricating due to incorporated solid lubricants
For this application, springs were coated with an iglidur coating material and used to guide window blinds. The manufacturer was faced with the problem that lubricants did not last over the entire service life of the blinds. So he tested springs with an iglidur IC-02 coating. Although the springs touched the aluminium housing in the test, the coated spring survived the housing. In addition, there was no noise generation by the springs in the test. Thanks to the coating, the use of grease can now be completely eliminated.
Until now, wear pads made of aluminium and a POM material have been used in this application to prevent the wear of two metal components. Now this customer relies on wear pads coated with iglidur IC-02 high-performance polymers. To ensure that the coated plates withstand the extreme environmental conditions, they have been tested in practice with sand, water and high and low temperatures. The result: the ambient conditions are no problem and the metal components do not wear out.
Our customer, a manufacturer of office chairs, used to use components made of a POM material for the armrests. Since the friction of this material was too high, he decided on an alternative from igus: Moulded aluminium linear guides combined with sliding elements made of iglidur J massively reduced the friction. The customer used to coat the aluminium channels with a clear PTFE colour, which was both expensive and required a long handling time. So he tested our IC-02 coating powder, which additionally reduced friction and was also more cost effective. The manufacturing process has thus taken a step forward: the components are now coated directly with IC-02 and no subsequent painting is required. The same contractor coats the inside with IC-02 and then paints the outside for a better look.
