This means high quality, self-lubricating iglide® polymers can be machined into custom parts and special bearing sizes. This is ideal for maintenance managers, special purpose machinery manufacturers and plant builders who require high performance material components in non-standard dimensions, small quantities, or for test samples and prototypes.
The solid rod is available in high-quality iglide® materials not accessible anywhere else on the market as semi-finished products.
Anything machined from the bar stock automatically possesses the material properties attributable to all igus® plastics: self-lubricating, zero maintenance, dirt and dust resistance, low wear, low friction, and more. The machined plastic part will also have a predictable life when used as a bearing.
