Adhesive tribo-tape liner

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.
