faigle rollers a GloBal sUccess story For more tHaN 40 years
in 1968 faigle started to develop the irst escalator roller made of thermoplastic polyurethane. since then, faigle has continued to successfully develop and reine its plastic rollers. today, faigle supplies many millions of rollers every year for escalators, sorting plants and conveying systems to renowned manufacturers like schindler, Kone, otis, Beumer, tGW and many more. faigle rollers are used all around the world in any type of application which combines a demand for long service life with high loads. they are just as capable of meeting the harsh requirements for continuous use in subway escalators as they are of meeting the demands of fast-moving luggage sorting systems. Not only can faigle lay claim to a leading position among international competitors, but the company also impresses with a range of products which represent excellent value for money.

faigle rollers maDe From tHe FiNest iNGreDieNts staNDarD materials Pas ®-PU 90a-H thermoplastic polyurethane with a hardness of 90 shore a. our standard material for roller binding. alternatively also available in hardnesses of 85 shore a to 64 shore D. Pas ®-80 GF 30 our standard polyamide-based material for roller bodies. 30% reinforced with glass ibres for optimum strength, impact resistance and creep strength. reliable bonding to the polyurethane binding can be achieved. Pas ®-lX y Pom-based slide bearing material developed by faigle. With incorporated dry lubricants for maintenance-free and smooth running. excellent as a replacement for ball bearings in rollers. Pas ®-80 moD. Friction-modiied polyamide 6.6 for sl rollers. low-maintenance, smooth running on metal axles.
ProPerties oF Pas®-PU 90a-H aBrasioN resistaNce Pas®-PU 90a-H offers abrasion resistance which is several times higher than rubber. this makes Pas®PU 90a-H the perfect material for rollers in harsh continuous applications. tear ProPaGatioN resistaNce the high tear propagation resistance of Pas®-PU 90a-H prevents any damage to the tyre, for example as a result of sharp edges or chips, developing into larger cracks or tears. DamPiNG BeHaVioUr aND resilieNce Pas®-PU 90a-H is very highly capable of absorbing impacts and dynamic loads and can thus dampen noise and vibrations. its good resilience prevents permanent deformation or lattening of faigle rollers. HyDrolysis conventional polyurethane can be badly damaged by water penetration. For many years all faigle rollers have been manufactured exclusively from the hydrolysis-resistant material Pas®-PU 90a-H.
