With 80,000 machine components available from stock, polymer specialist igus offers the right part for almost any application. Now design, maintenance and mechanical engineers who make special parts themselves can order the company’s high-performance plastics as bar stock. igus has increased its range of available bar stock materials to include its proprietary polymers iglide A350 and iglide J350. Blue iglide A350 is suitable for medium to high loads and temperatures up to 356 degrees Fahrenheit. The material also conforms to FDA guidelines and can withstand acidic environments.

The highly wear-resistant polymer iglide J350 is suitable for rotational applications and is extremely low friction - especially when partnered with steel shafts. High loads, shocks and impacts are no problem for iglide J350. Its high temperature resistance up to 356 degrees Fahrenheit means this material is suitable for a wide range of applications.
