Rod end bearings

igubal® rod ends are corrosion-free and can be used without problems even under harsh conditions. In humid or wet environments, they are resistant to weak acids and alkalis. Like all igus® products, our rod end bearings are also lubrication-free and also significantly more cost-effective than comparable metallic solutions.
