Versatile liner: the first iglidur® tribo-tape

igus® Tribo-Tape liner is designed for versatile lining of tribologically challenged surfaces and shapes, for optimising movement within machine beds, etc. At a thickness of 0.5 - 1 mm (including the adhesive back + 0.15 mm), the space requirement is extremely low. The ease of use (the tape can simply be cut using scissors) and optional self-adhesive back of the liner open up almost endless possibilities for using it.

Lubrication and maintenance-free

Easy to cut

Adhesive version available

For small spaces

FDA-compliant (iglidur® A160)

With or without self-adhesive back


Typical application areas:Mechanical engineering, material handling, jig making, assembly technology, etc.

The iglidur® tribo-tape liner is also available with a self-adhesive back for quick and easy installation.With a self-adhesive back, iglidur® A160 / B160 / W160 can be used at temperatures up to 90 °C and V400 up to 200 °C.

Tribo-Tape B180 liner  

Material of the liner: iglidur® B160

Extreme wear resistance

Low coefficients of friction

-40 °C to +90 °C


Especially where the iglidur® tribo-tape is a visible part, the new black option now offers even more creative freedom. Furthermore the wear resistance compared to variants made of iglidur® A160 has been improved once again.
