    More Details

    3D printer filament: iglidur® |180-BL-PF

    Components made of igus® Tribo-Filament are up to 50 times more wear-resistant than standard materials for 3D printing and therefore have an extremely long service life. Due to their excellent tribological
    properties, they are suited for 3D printing of replacement parts, for example bearings, drive nuts, gears and other wear parts. The igus® Tribo-Filaments can be processed on 3D printers that are based on the fused-deposition-modelling method (FDM/FFF) and that allow the nozzle temperature to be set as required.  

    Typical application areas:
    • Special machine construction
    • Jig construction
    • Complex wear parts
    Tribological 3D Printing Filament
    Tribology is the science and engineering of interacting surfaces in relative motion. It includes the study and application of the principles of friction, lubrication and wear.  Tribology is particularly important in today's world because so much energy is lost to friction in mechanical components. To use less energy, we need to minimize the amount that is wasted. Significant energy is lost due to friction in sliding interfaces.

    Iglidur I180
    • iglidur® I180 combines very high wear resistance with the highest strength of the iglidur® tribo-filaments
    • Easier to process than iglidur® I170 and iglidur® J260
    • Processable on 3D Desktop printers, where standard ABS filaments are used
    • Upon the processing the printer must be enclosed in a case and te cooling fan must be off
    • Flexural strength: 46 / 33 MPa
    • Versatile use: good combination of high wear resistance, strength and temperature resistance
    • Good processing ability with an enclosed printer and igus adhesive film
    • Colour black

    Tested strength when compared to machined and injection-moulded parts
    Up to 50 x higher abrasion resistance

    Test parameters - wear test swivelling

    Surface pressure: 1MPa

    Surface speed: 0.01m/s

    Pivoting angle: 60°

    Duration: four weeks
