A wide range of applications and outstanding properties – the APSOplast® guide tapes
Guide tapes are ideal for play-free guidance of pistons and piston rods in hydraulics as well as for cost and space-saving bearing of lubricated pivots and shafts (e.g. for levers with swivel movements).
With our high-performance fluoroplastics, there are almost no limits to the areas of application. PTFE 225, PTFE 660, PTFE 904 offer many advantages such as "no stick-slip effect", an extremely low coefficient of sliding friction, excellent chemical resistance and a wide temperature range.
Our guide tapes can be used in a very wide range of applications, such as for play-free bearing of shafts and pivots in chemical apparatus engineering. They are particularly suitable for slow rotational, swivel and lifting movements.
In the field of PTFE, we offer you guide tapes made of various high-performance compounds:
PTFE with 25% carbon fibre (PTFE 225)
PTFE 225 with 25% carbon fibre offers a low coefficient of sliding friction and high wear resistance with good chemical resistance.
Ideal for backlash-free guidance of pistons and piston rods in pneumatics and hydraulics; for cost and space-saving bearing of shafts e.g. for levers with swivel movements, pivots etc. Guide belts made of PTFE with carbon are suitable for dry and wet running.
PTFE with 60% bronze (PTFE 660)
Ideal for backlash-free guidance of pistons and piston rods in hydraulics; for cost and space-saving storage of lubricated pivots and shafts, e.g. for levers with swivel movements.
PTFE with glass fibre and metal oxide (PTFE 904)
Ideal for backlash-free bearing support of shafts and trunnions in chemical apparatus engineering; suitable for slow rotary, swivel and lifting movements.
PTFE HP108 with glass fibre and metal oxide
They are etched on one side and can therefore be used as an adhesive sliding surface for slideways and slide guides, e.g. for machine tools, cross tables; for maintenance-free and jerk-free operation in machine, apparatus and textile machine construction; to be applied to the underside of the slide.
The sliding coating with an extremely low coefficient of sliding friction is suitable for dry-running operation, without any stick-slip effect.
On request, our guide tapes are available ready-cut to circumferential length, also with a bevel cut; in highly wear-resistant APSOplast® PTFE VF special compounds; thrust washers, punched or turned. Talk to our plastics experts!
