As a top plastic manufacturer, Slideways only uses the best plastic – UHMW – in machining plastic components and chain guides. All types of UHMW (Ultra High Molecular Weight) of plastic used in our custom fabricated parts have thesecharacteristics:

  • Noise reduction
  • 自润滑
  • Corrosion Resistance
  • Low Friction
  • No moisture


Natural UHMW– Our most popular material because it is so versatile for so many industries and because it meets FDA and USDA standards.

Repro/UHMW– Reprocessed UHMW is available in green and black.

/uhmw- 用于较低摩擦的油填充,该UHMW用于滚动端轴承,滚子导线,星轮等。

CS/UHMW- (Tivar®Clean-Stat)是反静态的,符合FDA和USDA以及3-A乳制品标准。用于料斗衬里和振动进料器锅。

CP/UHMW– (Ceram P® – Glass-filled UHMW, good for high loads, high speed. Used in bushings, pump impellers and wire belt pulleys.

DS/UHMW– (DrySlide) is also anti-static and ideal for dusty environments.

as/uhmw– Anti-static formula which protects against an electrical charge build-up. Used in these industries – chemicals, explosives, electronics, grain handling and package handling.

HT/UHMW- 高温UHMW高达275º,用于烘焙,输送机制造,食品加工,肉类和家禽加工以及宠物食品制造。

UV/htmw- 受保护和抗性的超紫罗兰,保留了码头,运输,娱乐和农业的​​外部用途长达三倍的关键特性。

Tivar® 88 (Special Lining Formula)– Promotes reliable, steady bulk material flow, used in liners slider beds, and wear strips.


HDPE– High Density Polyethylene is a thermoplastic made from petroleum and is used in low wear applications such as star wheels, cutting boards.

Nylon 6- 天然尼龙,这种尼龙很坚固,符合FDA标准。用于机器零件和链轮。

MD-Nylon– Molybdenum Disulfide content to this nylon makes it good for longer part life and it is friction resistant. It is used in corner trax, wheels, cams, sprockets and chain guides.

Acetal– Acetal or Delrin® has excellent stability and meets FDA guidelines. It is often used in the pharmaceutical industry.

PTFE (Glass-filled)– Known as Teflon®, this operates up to 500 degrees and is used in wear strips, bearings and wear pads in the baking and chemical industries.

Fluorosint Material– A Mica filled PTFE with excellent chemical resistance, dimensional stability and wear characteristics.

ERTALYTE®TX用固体lubrica——宠物nt: Good dimensional stability, high strength and stiffness, excellent wear characteristics. FDA Compliant

窥视– Excellent chemical resistance, thermally stable to 480o F Good wear and abrasion resistance. Superior bearing material. Available in glass reinforced and carbon reinforced

Torlon®– Superior strength, stiffness and creep resistance. Thermally stable to 475o F. Good wear resistance. Available in unfilled, glass and carbon filled grades

Rulon Material– has a low coefficient of friction, stable to 550o F. Superior stiffness and compressive strength. An excellent bearing material. Available in a variety of Grades.

Lexan– A type of plastic which is intended to replace glass where the need for it justifies its higher costs. It is used in packaging equipment in the covers and guards.

尼龙- 充满油的尼龙,具有高载荷和低摩擦力。它用于链轮,衬套,在农业和建筑行业中佩戴零件。

Wood (Lube-filled)– Wood, such as hard cherry and filled with lubricant, performs well in making bow curves, chain guides and hanger bearings on conveyor belts.
