iglidur on tour - our journey so far

iglidur on tour - our journey so far
To celebrate 30 years of iglidur materials, polymer specialist igus has retrofitted a car with iglidur bearings which is currently travelling around the world. The iglidur bearings have replaced bearings in applications such as the windscreen wipers, brake pedal pivot point and throttle valves, thus demonstrating the durable and robust nature of the iglidur materials. The self-lubricating iglidur bearings provide a more efficient solution for car designers looking for dirt and chemical resistant bearings that operate more quietly than their metallic counterparts. Whilst reducing weight and eliminating the need for maintenance.

The iglidur car has nearly completed the first leg of its tour, travelling through India, China, Taiwan and Japan visiting customers and spreading the 'plastic for longer life' ethos, and of course, doing a bit of sightseeing! Through its already vast journey, iglidur has proven its reliability by travelling in some harsh environments, from dirt tracks to wet and humid locations throughout.
