Shaft coatings & sprays made from high-strength iglide® polymers

Shaft coatings made from our high-performance polymer materials provides your components with the low wear and excellent sliding properties of iglide® materials. iglide® coatings are essentially a tribologically-optimized polymer in powder form, which can be applied to metallic surfaces via a process known as "powder-coating". From heavily used valves and pistons, to guide rollers in conveyor technology and slewing rings in furniture technology, iglide® shaft coating is an innovative alternative wherever a classic shaft-bearing combination is not possible.

igus® offers two methods for shaft coating:

1. We coat your component for you

Like all igus® products, our iglide® shaft coating materials are subjected to rigorous tests within our test laboratory to ensures that they provide you with the longest possible service life:

  • Very good mechanical characteristic values
  • Excellent wear and sliding properties
  • Precise detail in exact surfaces
  • Self-lubricating through incorporated solid lubricants
