Food-safe 3D printing for abrasion- and wear-resistant parts

Order abrasion-resistant parts from the 3D printing service or print them yourself

Laser sintering with iglide I6

3D printing, SLS laser sintering, food-safe
  • Compliant with the food-specific regulations of EU 10/2011
  • Max. application temperature: +80°C
  • Extremely abrasion-resistant: e.g. at least 9 times more abrasion-resistant
    than PA12 (SLS) in rotation test
  • Best strength and surfaces of all igus food-safe 3D printing materials

iglide I150: the all-rounder filament

food-safe filament
  • Compliant with food-specific  regulations according to EU 10/2011
  • Can be processed on all regular 3D printers
  • The most frequently used tribo-filament® with very good mechanical properties (strength, resilience, layer adhesion)
