ProTek Slide Plates Diagram
APP’s ProTek Slide Plates are constructed from sodium-etched PTFE (3/32” thick) bonded to 10 gauge carbon steel. Different thicknesses and materials are available upon request.
The backing plate is welded to the structural steel member.
The slide surface is bonded to the backing plate using a high strength structural epoxy.
The sliding surface provides a low coefficient of friction to prevent wear due to expansion and contraction.
