Clear anodized rails in installation sizes 10, 16 & 20

Coefficients of friction of drylin films on anodised rails

We developed the linear rails with clear anodized finish for this purpose

The clear anodizing provides the rails with a consistent silver appearance. In every rail. Thus they serve well whenever they are used as visible parts.   We recommend using the new clear anodised rails with adjustable or pre-loaded igus® linear bearings.
