Swing pad®

Swing pad®

It is the sliding material with PTFE as the basic material.
It has an excellent self-lubrication and low-friction property and provide superior performance especially under low speed and high-load conditions.
Also, it withstands severe temperature change, absorbs the effect of dead load and live load of earthquake by the smooth sliding, and prevents the dangerous stress from occurring.


●Industrial use: Plant related/Pipelines/Storage tanks/Boilers/Flood gates/Others
●Construction use: Beam support/Curtain walls/Transit corridor expansion/Gate slides/Others
●Public works: Highway bridge support/Railway bridge support/Others
●Others: Vehicles (Central plate slider and lateral plate slider of the truck)/Bearings material for extruded construction/Vessel movable carriage/Others


●Low coefficient of friction: A very low coefficient of friction can be obtained under low speed and high-load conditions.
●Smooth sliding characteristics: There is no phenomenon such as self-welding and stick-slip, the deformation such as expansion or shrinkage at the time of heavy load is smoothly absorbed.
●Complete self-lubrication: It is a complete oil-free sliding material which does not require maintenance such as lubrication.
●Simple design: Good workability, and since the thin plate is placed on the sliding surface, it is available in simple and compact design.
●Excellent weather resistance: It is hardly affected by the weather or climate even if exposed outdoors. Also, there is no rusting or corrosion, and the friction coefficient remains stable in the wide range of temperature.
