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. 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).
