Polygon Composites Technology introduced its PolySlide® composite cylinder tubing designed for use with pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders. This composite tubing can replace metallic material in a variety of cylinder applications.
Supplied as a cylinder tube ready for customer assembly, or as fully engineered cylinder assemblies for equipment manufacturer applications, the composite cylinder tubing is made of continuous filament-wound glass fiber and polymer resins.
The fiberglass filament and resin materials form a high strength component that exhibits dimensional stability, is non-corroding, impingement resistant and is non-conductive.
PolySlide can be used in harsh environments, high and low temperatures; with grease, grit, salt, chemicals and in other extreme conditions.
The tubing sizes range from as low as 0.25-inch inner diameter (ID) up to industrial-sized 24-inch IDs. It also allows the seal to slide over the bore surface contour, minimizing interlocking friction.
The inside diameter of the tubing has a smooth finish. Contact with the non-metallic rod guide bearing prevents galling and provides for a low coefficient of friction. A wear resistant material incorporated into the bore surface further increases the lifespan of the composite cylinder tubing.
