Guide Tape or Bearing Strip is an important component in a hydraulic cylinder,used to stabilize and reduce vertical movements of the rod. The side loads that the PTFE Guide Tape has to withstand can be significant, butdeformation of the PTFE Guide Tape is not permanent.
It is requested to be durable, non-elastic and to have a very low point of friction. Compared to metal guides, the PTFE Guide Tape offers a much longer service life and better sealing ability. From a lubrication point of view, the self-lubricating PTFE Guide Tape is more effective than the metal guide.
