Self-lubricating filament iglidur i180

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 worn parts. The igus™ Tribo-Filaments can be processed on 3D printers that are based on the fused-deposition-modeling method (FDM/FFF) and that allow the nozzle temperature to be set as required.

Components made from the 3D printing material iglidur i180-PF can be used universally for all types of wear parts, such as plain bearings, gears and drive nuts, as this material has also been specifically developed for moving applications. The higher wear resistance and higher temperature resistance (100°C over the long term) extend the range of application, especially for more dynamic applications with higher surface speeds. The filament is easy to process on encased 3D printers and is somewhat higher in terms of processing requirements than an ABS filament. At the igus Adhesive film for the print bed or the Bonding agent for tribofilaments accessory materials are available to facilitate processing.

When to use it?

  • When an increased permanent application temperature of up to 100°C is required.
  • For highly dynamic plain bearing applications

When not to use it?

  • If the application temperature is higher than 100°C in the long-term, or even higher wear resistance is required (→ iglidur J260-PF)
  • If I need a filament that is very easy to process or if I only have an open 3D printer (→ iglidur i150-PF)

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 processing, the printer must be enclosed in a case and the cooling fan must be off
  • Flexural strength: 46 / 33 MPa
  • Versatile use: a good combination of high wear resistance, strength, and temperature resistance
  • Good processing ability with an enclosed printer and igus adhesive film
  • Colour Black
