Poly Fluoro Piston Bands are designed for hydraulic and pneumatic equipment. With a unique design, it prevents equipment seizures that can arise with lesser polymers and offers extremely low-friction and breakaway forces. Our piston bands help address the problem of re-machining costly cylinders and repairing large-diameter equipment.
At Poly Fluoro, coils are manufactured in common sizes and are easy to use, cut, and install. Parts can also be punched to a specific profile in case large volumes are needed.
Additionally, bearing materials that are specifically designed to support heavy loads are made from PTFE with a 40% bronze filling. Their exceptional physical properties make our bands and strips suitable for use on rams or pistons in reciprocating applications.
