Polymer Piston Rings from iglide®

iglide® piston rings are used as bearings to protect pistons and rods from wear in hydraulics and pneumatics. The high-performance polymers used in iglide piston rings ensure low coefficients of friction, as well as optimal running and wear behavior while still able to withstand high mechanical loads. iglide polymers are also self lubricating, eliminating the need for external lubricants or grease and allowing for maintenance-free operation. All of our piston ring materials are rigorously tested within our 41,000 sq. ft. test lab to guarantee long service life and efficient operation.

If you’re looking for a piston ring outside of our standard catalog dimensions, we can still provide a solution for you. With the igus FastLine service, a unique mold can be created with non-standard dimensions, and finished parts are shipped in as little as two weeks.
