AFT Fluorotec has been manufacturing skidway plates and slide bearings for the UK construction industry for many years.

Slide bearings are becoming more and more common as buildings use steel skeleton structures and require the use of movement and/or expansion joints in the form of PTFE slide bearings.

  • Slide Bearings

    AF115 is reinforced PTFE material specifically developed for slide bearing and skidway applications. This material comprises a unique blend of filler compounds to give optimum compressive strength.


    AFT Fluorotec PTFE skidway plates or Teflon skidway plates – are used to aid the skidding of topsides, jackets and other heavy fabrications.
