Tribo-tape is an iglidur® high-performance tribologically designed plastic adhesive tape which is ideal for lining surfaces and shapes, as well as for transport optimisation, for machine beds, and as edge protection, etc. This reduces noise and creates a smooth sliding motion without reducing co-efficient of friction.
The tribo-tape comes in various materials and widths as standard. These range from 20mm wide up to 500mm wide and come in thicknesses of 0.5mm to 1mm either as self-adhesive or non-self-adhesive backed.
Being easy to cut to shape – possible with a pair of scissors –allows for endless possibilities of use, for example in medical equipment, food industry machinery, furniture manufacturing or in machine tool making.
Surface coatings - wear resistant and sliding
Coating “powder coating” is the new surface coating solution that igus® now offers in a tribologically optimized polymer powder form. The coating can be applied to metallic surfaces to create a low wear sliding surface with all the properties of iglidur® materials. This new method creates possibilities for new shaft/bearing combinations.
The tape comes in 4 different materials. A160, B160, V400 and W160 all with different properties.
Ye, the A160 is FDA. It is blue in colour so is ideal for the food industry. It comes in different widths and thicknesses and adhesive backed or non adhesive backed.
The V400 tape is a high temperature tape, up to 200 degrees C long term.
