'iglidur on tour' car completes UK leg

'iglidur on tour' car completes UK leg

Polymer bearing specialist igus rounded off 2014 with a celebration of their 50th birthday and also 30 years of their self-lubricating bearing material, iglidur. To mark both milestones and demonstrate the robust and durable nature of the material in extreme environments, igus retrofitted a small car with iglidur bearings and sent it on a round the world trip. The iglidur car has now completed the UK leg of its tour, which began in November, having visited famous landmarks around the country, such as the Stonehenge, Angel of The North, Edinburgh Castle and Buckingham Palace.

A key part of the tour is the donation of the equivalent of €1 per mile travelled to charities in communities through which the iglidur car passes. In the UK, igus held a small charity event at the Northampton Guildhall, near to its UK headquarters, where the company donated £2,500 to the neonatal Gosset Ward at Northampton General Hospital.

The iglidur car left the UK at the end of November to continue with the rest of its European leg, moving on to France.
