From bridges to pipelines to dams, wherever components move in relation to each other, our solutions offer unparalleled safety and reliability through extreme weather, loads and shocks.
Our proprietary sodium ammonia fluoropolymer etching process results in a far more durable, resilient bond for employing PTFE or other polymers in moving components on bridges. In dams, our PTFE solutions provide excellent wear properties, low friction and corrosion resistance in roller and radial gate applications.
Common construction and infrastructure applications include slide bearings and rubber laminations where anti-stick properties are needed during freezing conditions. Etching can be performed on one or multiple surfaces and on flat or contoured surfaces. Our expert applications engineers can work with you to identify the ideal material and etching process for your need.
