igus® Tribo-filament Inducted Into Material ConneXion Design Library

Global material and innovation consultancy Material ConneXion has inducted igus’ latest material, its 3D tribo-filament, into its polymers library, voting it best material at the monthly jury. The Material ConneXion’s material library features over 7,500 cutting-edge materials in eight categories, which designers, students, and other subscribers to the library use as a resource in developing their projects. Material ConneXion’s international network of specialists provide a global, cross-industry perspective on materials, design, product development, and innovation.

Samples of igus’ filament will be sent to the various locations of the materials library, which is located 8 cities, including Bangkok, Milan, Tokyo, and New York City. The material, according to Fiona Anastas, Materials Specialist with the firm, sparked discussion on the value of “performance vs ‘pretty’ 3D printing materials.”

igus’ filament is the world’s first filament developed for moving applications, and is tested to be 50 times more abrasion-resistant than PLA filament. The material allows the expansion of 3D printing from a prototyping system to a way of creating usable components for moving applications.
