Metal component with iglidur IC-07 coating

Especially chemical-resistant

iglidur® IC-07, the wear and chemical-resistant polymer coating

The new coating formulation iglidur® IC-07 was optimised in particular regarding its chemical resistance, and protects metal surfaces not only against friction and wear, but also against aggressive chemicals.  

Tech up

  • Low coefficient of friction
  • High chemical resistance

Cost down

Cost down

  • Easy coating of metallic components
  • Available as powder from stock



Wear tested in the igus test laboratory:
V2A shaft oscillating, p = 1N/mm², v = 0.01m/s
result: 2.21µm/km



  • Environmentally friendly as no additional lubricants needed
  • Good coefficient of wear and therefore a long service life
igus supports the circular economy of plastics and is investing in chemical recycling. Learn more about this topic.

Bearings in dirty environments

Protection against wear & chemicals

We have developed the iglidur IC-07 coating for this purpose

When metallic surfaces not only have to be protected against wear and abrasion, but are also exposed to regular or continuous contact with aggressive chemicals, resistant coatings can be the solution.  
The new iglidur IC-07 coating is particularly suited for highly stressed guide and bearing systems in special machine construction, lab technology or generally in systems of fluid technology, such as valves or pumps.

What are iglidur® materials made of?

All iglidur materials consist of three components: base polymers, fibres and fillers, solid lubricants, whereby the bearings made of iglidur materials are maintenance-free and lubrication-free. As it is not possible for one universal material to fulfil all tasks equally well, there are different iglidur materials. Each has a different composition of the three components and a different application area.

Base polymers

iglidur base polymers

The base polymers are responsible for the iglidur materials' wear resistance. They ensure that the lubricants are not subjected to a surface pressure that is too high.  

Fibres and fillers

iglidur base polymers with fibres

These components strengthen the materials so that they withstand high forces or edge loads and can be used continuously.  

Solid lubricants

USP picture

They lubricate components made of iglidur materials independently and prevent friction. They are distributed in the entire material in the form of microscopic particles.
