Versatile liner: the first iglide® tribo-tape

The tribo-tape liner from igus® can be used to line a variety of tribologically stressed surfaces and shapes to optimize transportation tasks, for machine beds, etc. With a thickness of 0.5 - 1 mm (+0.15 mm for tape with the adhesive back), the space requirement is very low. It is very easy to work with (the tape can be cut using scissors) and offers optional self-adhesive back on the liner which results in almost unlimited possibilities for use.

Self-lubricating and maintenance-free

Easy to cut

Adherent

Suitable for the smallest installation spaces

FDA-compliant (iglide® A160)

With or without self-adhesive back


Typical applications:Mechanical engineering, materials handling, fixture construction, installation technology, etc.

The iglide® tribo-tape liner is also available with a self-adhesive back for quick and easy installation. With a self-adhesive back, iglide® A160 / B160 / W160 can be used at temperatures up to 194 ºF and V400 up to 320 ºF.
