Tan, low friction material suitable for aluminum surfaces, with excellent outgassing capability for use in vacuum
Rulon® XL is a tan colored material that is best for use against aluminum (including anodized) substrates. Rulon XL exhibits very low wear as compared with other Rulon® grades.
Other advantages offered by this unique material are that it combines low deformation under load with exceptionally good chemical resistance. It is compatible with a wide range of mating surfaces, but is not recommended for use with alkalis. Its non-abrasive character enhances the frictional performance to prevent galling of softer mating surfaces. It is the best material for vacuum service.
