In the igubal® K series, the spherical ball is made from our extremely wear-resistant iglide® L280 plastic. Spherical balls made from this material are known for their low coefficient of friction while running dry and extremely low tendency to stick-slip. This is especially important for applications with low loads and very slow movements.
In the igubal® E series, or K series with the CL suffix, the spherical ball may be switched out to offer another alternative depending on the needs of the application. The most popular alternative to iglide® L280 is iglide® R for its low cost, low coefficient of friction and low moisture absorption. Other specialized alternatives include iglide® J, iglide® J4, iglide® T500, or iglide® UW (meant strictly for underwater applications).
