The new abrasion-resistant iglidur sliding igus plate strips from Treotham Automation are made from high-performance plastics to give more geometric design options.

High-performance igus plastics from Treotham are routinely used in situations such as food technology that require freedom from lubricant, corrosion and maintenance.

In addition to the more than 50 high-performance igus polymers as plain bearings in the Treotham product range, the company also offers 27 of its materials as bar stock so customers can use the high-performance polymers to mill custom solutions and small batches themselves or order them from Treotham.

The company now also offers five of its materials as highly abrasion-resistant plate strips to give users more design freedom in terms of geometry when designing their wear-resistant special solution.

The sliding plates are manufactured by igus in Cologne in a newly built production facility and with advances in in-house development and production, further iglidur materials will be available in the future with plate strips in different thicknesses and lengths up to two metres.

All sliding plates now offered are in a 15 millimetre thickness and 160 millimetre width.
