TECAGLIDE green

PA 6 C lubricated

TECAGLIDE green is an internally lubricated cast nylon that utilizes a proprietary solid lubricant package. This state of the art technology allows the modified PA6 cast to show extremely good sliding and wear characteristics with very low friction and reduced abrasion, even in dry running conditions. The PA 6 C with lubricant is resistant to most petroleum based products, and exhibits a high level of ductility and toughness.
