Tribological polymer coatings – less wear, better sliding

Have your individual wear-resistant parts coated for a longer service life. Or coat them yourself.

Coating with our iglidur high-performance polymers gives your components a lower coefficient of wear and excellent sliding properties. The powder coating process is used to build up the tribological coating .

We offer you various iglidur coating materials whose properties make them especially well suited to particular areas of application. That is why they are used in areas such as:
IC-01: furniture industry, window and door hinges, machine building
IC-02: furniture industry, window and door hinges, machine building
IC-03: automotive technology, machine building, conveyor technology
IC-04: packaging industry, laboratory equipment
IC-05: packaging industry, beverage bottling
IC-06: automotive technology, machine building, conveyor technology
IC-07: laboratory equipment, food technology, medical technology
