Antibacterial plain bearing material for medical applications
16 January 2016
igus has introduced a plain bearing material for medical and laboratory applications called iglidur AB, which has undergone rigorous antimicrobial efficacy testing according to the ISO 22196: 2011 standard.
Results show that its antibacterial properties will help reduce bacterial contamination of users and patients and, like all other iglidur materials, is self-lubricating and therefore maintenance-free.
iglidur AB offers good resistance to chemicals, which enables bearings made of this material to withstand aggressive cleaning agents. In addition, a continuous application temperature range of -40 to +70ºC is possible.
Plain bearings made of the new material are available from igus ex-stock, in six different dimensions.
