Listed below you'll find the key properties displayed for reinforced PTFE and Virgin PTFE used in our skidway plates. Get in touch if you need any more information. 

Reinforced PTFE

Virgin PTFE

Product Description:

A reinforced PTFE material that has a low coefficient of friction, high creep resistance, high load bearing capacity and high wear resistance. Specifically developed for slide bearing and skidway applications.

A PTFE material that has a low coefficient of friction and high chemical inertness. Suitable for a very wide range of applications that require these characteristics.
