iglidur® i3-PL, laser sintering material

  • High wear-resistance and maximum stability
  • Good mechanical properties
  • Accurate surface details
  • For sliding applications and gears
  • Predictable gear service life
  • Can be processed with suitable commercially available laser sintering materials
Product description
Selective laser sintering (SLS) material: iglidur® i3-PL

The iglidur® i3-PL material, specially developed for laser sintering, showed an abrasion resistance 3 to 30 times better than conventional materials for laser sintering in the tribological tests in the igus® test laboratory. As a result, the degrees of freedom are further increased when designing wear-stressed sliding components. It is used for  all  sliding applications, as well as rollers, racks, spur gears and bevel gears.

When to use it?
  • For all types of applications where low friction and high wear resistance are important
  • When an easy to process laser sintering material with high strength is required
  • When components with high mechanical strength are required, in particular spur gears, bevel gears, drive nuts, special slides and spherical bearings
  • Very good wear properties with anodised aluminium as a counter partner
When not to use it?
