Tape Lowers Friction of Moves [New Products]

July 10, 2014

igus’ blue food-grade ‘tribo-tape’ material, made from self-lubricating iglide A160 material, is suited for lowering friction in a wide range of applications thanks to its low wear values. The tape is specifically notable for its maintenance-free dry-running properties that allow the addition of sliding surfaces wherever necessary. The material is also available in machinable bar stock for custom components with cleanroom and low-friction properties. Tribo-optimized Motion Plastics actuate, feed, and move installations, equipment, and products in the automotive and chemical industries, in mechanical and plant engineering, and in robotics.
