The material of which igus e-chains are made has to cope with a great deal of stress such as pressure and tensile strain, and must be abrasion-resistant, very sturdy and have a high modulus of elasticity, whereby it must also exhibit stable behaviour at high and low temperatures and be suitable for use in conjunction with chemicals. igus energy chains are made of the high-performance polymer igumid. The igus compound igumid satisfies these requirements, some of which are contradictory.
A detailed list provides information on the resistance of the igus materials igumid G, GLW and NB to many chemical substances.
If any of your chemicals are not on the list, please get in touch with us. We will be happy to carry out a test upon request.
