iglidur® I3-PL, SLS material

  • High wear-resistance and maximum stability
  • Good mechanical properties
  • Accurate in every detail with exact surfaces
  • For sliding applications and gears
  • Predictable service life of gears
  • Can be processed with suitable commercially available laser sintering materials
Product description
Selective laser sintering (SLS) material: iglidur® I3-PL

The iglidur® I3-PL material, specially developed for laser sintering, showed an abrasion resistance 3 to 30 times better than conventional materials for laser sintering in the tribological tests in the igus® test laboratory. This further increases the degrees of freedom in the design of sliding components subject to wear and tear. It is used  for any  sliding applications, as well as rollers, racks, spur gears and bevel gears.

When do I need it?
  • For all types of applications where low friction and high wear resistance are important
  • When an easy to process laser sintering material with high strength is required
  • When components with high mechanical strength are required, in particular spur gears, bevel gears, drive nuts, special slides and spherical bearings
  • Very good wear properties with anodised aluminium as a counter partner
When do I not need it?
