Orkot® Slydring® prevents metal-to-metal contact between piston / rod and bore / gland, absorbing high transverse loads. Orkot® is a resin impregnated, fine weave fabric material with added lubricants, preventing stick-slip. It is capable of withstanding high side loads, damping vibrations and embedded foreign particles. Higher static loads are permissible. Special materials are available with operating temperatures up to +250 °C / +482 °F.
