The proven long-life material is now available in black as well

iglidur® J3B round bar

As the yellowish J3 material does not always match the design concept of the user, igus has moved on from the proven tribo-polymer and developed the black iglidur® J3B (B= black) material. This material is now available as round bar stock as well.
Profit from the low coefficient of friction and very low water absorption: thanks to these properties, the tribo-polymer iglidur® J3B has already proven its worth in the sliding elements of linear technology and in the form of plain bearings.

Why was iglidur® J3B developed?

The "endurance runner" iglidur® J3 has proven its value in many applications. iglidur® J3 has now been developed further to create iglidur® J3B so that the material can be optimally adapted to the design of furniture or sports and leisure-time equipment, for example.
iglidur® J3B increases service life, especially of applications with low and medium loads and is therefore ideal for the bicycle industry, for example in pedals, brake levers or suspension devices. iglidur® J3B is also used in Crankbrothers mountain bike pedals. For years, the American company has been promoting premium components and relies on the lubrication-free and dirt-resistant plain bearings made of high-performance polymers.
iglidur® J3B is also used in the sports, fitness, & rehab sectors.
The igus® products do not need any lubrication. After all, no gym member wants to get dirty hands or oil marks on their stylish gym outfit. In any case, for professional use exercise machines have to withstand continuous operation on a daily basis, whether they are adjusted manually or electronically at the push of a button.
