iglide I180-PF

Category: iGlide

Material Information

Name: iglide I180-PF
Source: Plural Additive Manufacturing

Components made of igus® tribo-filament are up to 50 times more wear-resistant than standard materials for 3D printing and therefore have an extremely long service life. Due to their excellent tribological properties, they are suited for 3D printing of replacement parts for e.g., bearings, drive nuts, gears and other parts. This filament can be processed on 3D printers that are based on the fused-deposition-modelling method (FDM/FFF) and that allow the nozzle temperature to be set as required.

    General Comments


    • High abrasion resistance
    • Good mechanical properties
    • Lubrication-free
    • Silent operation and smooth sliding
    • Resistance to dirt
    • Long service life
    • Corrosion-resistant


    • Prototype constructions
    • Small batches
    • Construction tests


    • The printed parts are not chemically affected by the chemicals outlined in the Chemical Resistance sheet, but their dimensions may change after moisture absorption.
    • When heated above +300 °C, hazardous fumes are produced, therefore, good ventilation should be provided.
