Why the product keeps its promises

UL verified: chainflex receives the highest recognition by a globally recognised testing organisation

We issue a 36-month guarantee on our cables with confidence, as we are able to make reliable predictions about the service life of our cables due to over 30 years of experience in our 3,800m² test laboratory and 700 experiments running in parallel.
 
igus is now the first German firm to have this promise validated for chainflex cables. In a complex certification process, the US "Underwriters Laboratories" institute confirmed the accuracy of the "igus® 36-month chainflex cable guarantee and service life calculator based on two billion test cycles per year" promise. This makes the Cologne-based company the first in Europe to have the veracity of an advertising statement confirmed by a testing institution. In future, every chainflex cable that leaves the factory anywhere in the world will be identified by the UL marketing label with its unique number (B129699), referring to igus.
 
A total of 1,044 of the over 1,350 cables in the portfolio and available from stock, already have classic UL approval. This is a prerequisite for the smooth commissioning of plant in the USA. The export of plant to America will therefore run smoothly. The combination of UL approval and a UL marketing label benefits exports twice over:
