TEKSLIDE products are PTFE compounded grades used in the processing of tapes, bearing tapes and machined parts retaining the usual and well know conventional PTFE advantages improved at the same time by some enhanced properties:


  • Low coefficient of friction

  • High resistance and hardness

  • Low cold flow

  • Extreme temperature applications

  • Very high pressure resistance


TEKSLIDE products can be supplied etched in order to allow the most performing applications in the mechanical and other tribological fields.



  • Excellent performance in dry conditions at high PV values, the product of operating pressure and surface velocity. The PV value in dry conditions (max 20,000 psi-fpm) can widely overcome in case of lubricated applications.

  • Extremely low coefficient of friction static and dynamic

  • Extremely low stick-slip effect

  • Excellent wear resistance even in dry applications



  • Stable behavior at operating temperatures from -400 F to +500 F and for short time up to +536 F.

  • Dimensional stability

  • Excellent thermal dissipation capacity (specific grades)



  • Excellent chemical inertness

  • TEKSLIDE materials can operate in salt water, in steam environment or aggressive and corrosive chemical enviroments.

  • Good gas proof properties (specific grades)



According to different grades of TEKSLIDE materials the following properties can be enhanced:

  • Good dielectrical properties (insulation)

  • Excellent conductivity properties for anti-static applications



  • Extremely high PV and sliding behavior

  • High load compression resistance (radial/axial)

  • Low abrasion surface for applications on soft countersurfaces

  • Excellent vibration dampening and noiseless



  • Flexibility and fatigue stress resistance

  • Some of the TEKSLIDE materials are atoxic and excellent for food contact and food industry applications.
