Light plastic bushings by Igus

Quickly delivered as usual our longtime supporter Igus provides Elbflorace in another season with bushings coming from a range of about 50 different kinds of plastics in all usual contours and sizes.

These plastics, also traded as iglidur®, all have low friction properties in common. To guarantee a long durability the plastics are optimized for the most various kinds of applications. For that they have properties like damping of vibrations, withstanding high pressures or friction, extreme chemical resistance or service temperatures between -100°C and 250°C. So they are able to keep up to or even outperform conventional metal bushings and even decrease the weight significantly.

Because of these benefits bushings by Igus have been a save component of Elbflorace’s suspensions for many years until now and have always granted a smooth actuation.

Igus was founded in the sixties in Cologne and has grown to company with about 3000 employees, branches in over thirty countries worldwide and thousands of new developments per year. Besides their bushings Igus also produces high flexible energy chains.

With this article we would like to thank Igus for the continuance of our collaboration and hope that it will last that flawless for a long time.
