Linear Slides are
ready for water, washdown and all weather applications. WDX
Polyethylene carriage and end blocks are:
WDX is a very tough material, with
the highest impact strength of any thermoplastic presently made.
It is highly resistant to corrosive chemicals with exception of
oxidizing acids; has extremely low moisture absorption and a
verylow coefficient of friction; is self-lubricating; and is
highly resistant to abrasion, in some forms being 15 times moreresistant to abrasion
than carbon steel. Its coefficient
of friction is significantly lower than that of nylon and
acetal, and is comparable to that of polytetrafluoroethylene
(PTFE, Teflon®), but WDX has better abrasion resistance than
PTFE. It is odorless, tasteless, and nontoxic and FDA approved.
NOTE: Open Design Allows for Debris
Pass-Through During Washdown
