igus wheel

Robust, futuristic look and recyclable - from ocean plastics to motion plastics​

Made from recycled plastic waste

For production, igus uses specially built machines with lubrication-free and durable igus components. The plastic is moulded in the rotomoulding or rotary casting process with low pressure and high temperature, which combines heat and biaxial rotation. The wheels are made from soft plastics such as polyethylene (PE). They can also be made to a large extent from recycled plastic waste such as discarded fishing nets. This is how the mobility of tomorrow is to be created from yesterday's marine plastic.
