iglidur On Tour to Celebrate 30 Years

Celebrating 30 years of its iglidur materials, igus has sent a small car, equipped with iglidur plain bearing components, on a round the world tour. Putting the resilience and potential of its tribo-polymers to the test, the car, with its easily recognisable igus orange livery will travel across four continents on different road conditions, ranging from the smooth tarmac we're used to in the UK to muddy tracks.

"Low-friction and self-lubrication is the modern solution for a wide range of moving applications," says Rob Dumayne, director at igus. "To continuously improve our products, we have been conducting research in this area during these three decades using our in-house test laboratory, the largest in the sector."

To demonstrate the capabilities of the carefully tested, innovative polymer technology, which has now been used millions of times, igus has retrofitted a small car with iglidur components and send it on a strenuous round-the-world trip along tarmac, gravel and mud tracks. On the way, it will spread the company's motto to the world: 'plastics for longer life' - travelling first to India, then China. Further Asian countries of Japan, South Korea and Taiwan will then follow before the car makes the crossing to North America for a coast-to-coast tour through Canada and the USA. The route plan then returns to Europe. Every stop and every kilometre can be experienced and tracked in detail at blog.igus.co.uk
