Why iglidur® 3D printing materials?
High-performance plastics from the specialist
As a tribological specialist, igus® also researches in the 3D printing technology to provide maximum possibilities for the construction of moving applications with lubrication-free and maintenance-free plastics. 3D printing materials made from the high-performance plastic iglidur® are the result. Depending on the chosen material, it is even possible to use the same iglidur® material of the 3D-printed prototype for the component in serial production. Whether for prototypes or small batches – you can always rely on the tested service life of the igus® special plastics.
Predictable service life
With more than 135 trillion test movements annually, igus® tests iglidur® plastics in terms of wear, coefficient of friction and other relevant properties. It is thus possible to give precise forecasts on the service life of components in moving applications.
