TECAGLIDE™ High Wear

TECAGLIDE™ is an internally lubricated cast nylon that utilizes a proprietary solid lubricant package. This state of the art technology allows for extremely good sliding and wear characteristics, combined with high mechanical load properties. It is resistant to most petroleum based products, and exhibits a high level of ductility and toughness.

  • Excellent slip-stick properties
  • Excellent wear resistance
  • Good machinability
  • Resistant to many oils, greases and fuels
  • High toughness
  • High mechanical load capacity

TECAGLIDE™ is particularly suited to the construction industry, conveyor technology, packaging and paper machinery. It can also be used in the mining and textile industries.
