Wear-resistant and lubrication-free: New igus bar stock for food


Treotham has expanded its wide range of igus iglidur round bars with four materials; among them two for the food sector: the heat-resistant material iglidur AC500 and the resilient material A250.

The new iglidur A250 round bars from Treotham are also predestined for the food and packaging industry. They are suitable, among other things, for the production of so-called knife edge rollers, which are used in the deflection of conveyor belts.

In this function, the material reduces the drive power required and the energy consumption of the belts thanks to its low-friction, lubrication-free dry operation. In addition, the material impresses with its high load-bearing capacity. iglidur A250 is designed in such a way that it can be used for high belt speeds in the food and packaging industry.

And just like AC500, A250 also has the approval for direct contact with food. The material complies with the hygiene guidelines of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and EU Regulation 10/2011.
