Solutions for the cement industry

In the building materials industry, the cement industry plays an important part while acting as a successful driver in the entire building sector. In the modern industrial society, cement is indispensable as a part of concrete. Without cement as a binding agent, long-lasting industrial, residential and office buildings as well as resilient infrastructures would not be built. Low maintenance times and the material's high durability play an important part in the manufacturing of cement in cement plants. Specially developed high-performance polymers enable the use of igus e-chains in nearly all areas. No matter what the requirements are: with igus you always provide the optimal solution, as our materials do without steel or similar metals.The benefits at a glance:

  • Cost-effective, modular design
  • Durability with low maintenance
  • Resistant to dirt, chemicals and high temperatures
  • Very lightweight with high stability
  • Corrosion-free
  • TÜV tested
