Excellent polymers, improved through precise additions of reinforcing materials, tested thousands of times and proven in millions of applications - this is what igus motion plastics stand for.
Every year, our engineers develop more than 100 new polymer compounds and conduct more than 3,500 tests on maintenance-free plain bearings, over the years they have established a large database of polymers' tribological properties.

The robust and durable drylin material offers a maintenance-free solution with long service life, even when it is subject to frequent adjustment, e.g. due to car sharing. Latching points in the guide rail allow for an incremental adjustment.
drylin linear guides slide on polymers and therefore do not contain any sensitive components, such as recirculating ball bearing guides. Therefore, they are resistant to dirt and heat. Apart from that, the material is corrosion-free and has a low moisture absorption.
Depending on the material, igubal coupling joints can be used at high temperatures, and are hence ideal for use at a turbocharger. They are also characterised by their dirt-insensitive and corrosion-free use.
Metallic applications are replaced by igubal coupling joints at the gearbox, as the high performance polymers reduce noise and dampen vibrations.
In contrast to coupling joints made of heavy metal, igubal plastic coupling joints show a low coefficient of wear and hence withstand frequent loads, in addition to the weight advantage.
