The Rulon® 1337 is extremely wear resistant against lower hardness mating surfaces and Rulon® 1439 has excellent wear resistance in submerged applications. Rulon 641, 1439 and 1337 all have an excellent coefficient of friction, suitable for use with stainless steel and are available in standard or custom sizes. All Rulon® materials retain their critical properties over temperatures ranging from –400 to +550F for continuous operation, have a self-lubricating design and provide long maintenance-free service for the most demanding applications.
