Wear Strips and Bands

Poly Fluoro Ltd Piston Bands are designed for hydraulic and pneumatic equipment. Its unique design prevents equipment seizures which can arise with other forms of guidance materials. Poly Fluoro Ltd Piston Bands offer extremely low friction and break-away forces. This material is also resistant to all hydraulic fluids and is suitable for temperatures up to 200°C.

Poly Fluoro Ltd Piston bands are the solution to costly cylinder re-machining and repairs for large diameter equipment. Coils are available in common sizes and are easy to use, cut and install.

The bearing material is made from PTFE with a 40% Bronze filling and is specifically designed to support heavy loads. The exceptional physical properties and PTFE's self-lubrication properties make the piston bands suitable for use on rams or pistons in reciprocating applications.
