Plastic rod and plates made from iglidur® materials

Plastic rods (also known as bar stock) and plastic sheets make it possible to cost-effectively produce components and profiles for motion. Igus® plastic rods are suited for individual product series or prototypes. Plastic plates, hollow and round rods are made of a wide range of different iglidur® high-performance polymers. The properties of each individual material make it a specialist for certain applications, such as an especially low coefficient of friction or high temperatures, food compliant and FDA approved, chemically resistant and high load. With the expert system for plastic rod the service life for plain bearing applications can be calculated online. iglidur® plastic rods and plates are used with great success in mechanical engineering, food and packaging industry as well as in medical laboratories and cleanrooms, to name only a few applications.
