► High chemical resistance and toughness
► No maintenance or lubrication necessary thanks to integrated solid lubricants
► No tool costs - efficient for even a single unit
You can find information on chemical resistance for individual materials under "Technical data" in the Material shop or under "More information" for each material in the 3D printing service.
The polymers are each checked for resistance to the chemicals in question. Mixtures are not considered. All information is given for room temperature. Plastic resistance is divided into resistant (+), limited resistance (0), and not resistant (-).
Food compliance according to FDA and EU 10/2011 has made high-performance polymer iglidur A350 a popular material in the food and packaging industries. The abrasion-resistant high-temperature filament has a wide range of applications, and it functions well even with high application temperatures (up to +180 °C). iglidur A350 is processed into rollers for rolling knife edges, for example, that require neither lubrication nor maintenance. If food is handled, the environment must be kept especially hygienic, making regular system cleaning and disinfection indispensable. In testing, iglidur A350 proved chemically resistant to alcohols, cleaning agents commonly used in the food industry and diluted acids and bases. iglidur A350 is available as a 3D print filament. Wear-resistant parts made of iglidur A350 can be manufactured quickly and cost-effectively in the igus 3D printing service.
We would be happy to check your application to determine whether iglidur 3D printing materials are resistant to certain chemicals.
