Ring-shaped interior separation for the e-skin®

Ring-shaped interior separation system for the e-skin corrugated tube.

Minimum particle emission, maximum service life

e-skin - ring-shaped, wear-resistant interior separation system made of tribo-polymer for a long cable service life. 
Sprayed-on separators on two half-shells that are placed into the e-skin cleanroom corrugated tube. iglidur J, a material known from the iglidur range of materials, is extremely wear-resistant and drastically minimises abrasion between cables.

Tech up

Tech up

  • Further reduces cable abrasion in the e-skin energy supply system
  • Consists of upper and lower shells onto which separators have already been sprayed
  • Can be combined with shelves; highly wear-resistant thanks to tribo-plastic from the iglidur product range
  • For the e-skin SK, SKS, and SKY cleanroom-compatible corrugated tubes

Cost down

Cost down

  • Longer service life of the cables due to reduced jacket abrasion
  • Maintenance-friendly and easy to retrofit for greater cleanroom suitability



  • Abrasion/cable tests in the igus laboratory. The iglidur J material produces 77% less abrasion*
*Measured and averaged in use with five different friction partners: 1) CF340.250.01 2) CF270.UL.350.01.D 3) CF886.350.01 4) CAPE.A.10.0 5) CAPU.A10.0 compared to the standard material igumd G

Note: the interior separation system is mounted at the connecting points of the e-skin energy supply tube!

The e-skin is a corrugated tube consisting of an upper and lower shell that form a complete enclosure when connected together. The simple resealable opening mechanism enables easy maintenance and inspection of the cables inside. e-skin has many advantages over conventional corrugated tubes and it is available in 3 different versions:

e-skin SK corrugated tube

e-skin SK
For unsupported lengths up to 2.0m and installation space from 250mm

e-skin soft corrugated tube

e-skin soft SKS
For unsupported length up to 1.3m and installation space from 150mm

e-skin Hybrid corrugated tube

e-skin Hybrid SKY
For unsupported length up to 1.4mm and installation space from 200mm
