Turcite® and Zurcon® Slydring® for Rod

Turcite® Slydring® prevents metal-to-metal contact between piston / rod and bore / gland, absorbing transverse loads. Suitable for most hydraulic fluids, Turcite® material demonstrates good load capacity with low friction and stick-slip-free operation. ‘Teardrop’ structure on some of Turcite® sizes improves lubrication and protects against damage by dirt particles by embedding them. Higher static loads are permissible.
