Guiding Elements

Guide Tape

Guide Tape is preferentially used in hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders. They assist the moving of pistons and piston rods to avoid metallic contact between sliding parts, and to absorb transverse forces. Guide Tape from PTFE materials are excellent for this, due to their outstanding glide characteristics and high thermal and chemical resistance. Their use enhances service life and functional reliability of seals and cylinders.

We supply Guide Tape in various widths from 2mm to 80mm and in thickness from 1,0mm to 4,0mm. Materials are chosen for the specific application. We also offer Diamond Structure (also called Tear Drop) for easier installation and lubrication.
