PolySlide® Composite Pneumatic and Hydraulic Cylinders
Polygon's PolySlide products are revolutionizing the motion control field with advanced composite cylinder tubing materials, providing high performance and value compared to aluminum and other similar metallic materials.
Composite Cylinder Benefits:
- Low friction for reduced seal wear
- Lower weight, even lower than aluminum and comparable to magnesium
- Better corrosion resistance, allowing use in caustic environments
- Improved impact resistance
- Enhanced impingement resistance - resists denting
PolySlide can be interchanged with any metallic cylinder material in a variety of tie-rod applications.
Polygon Company has patented numerous end termination techniques for non-tie rod applications.
Complete Fabrication Available
PolySlide cylinders can be provided as needed, from a simple cylinder tube cut to length for customer assembly to a complete cylinder assemblies designed and built in-house according to your specifications. Assemblies are available for numerous applications ranging from trucks to packaging equipment.
On-site Testing Facilities
Polygon not only has the technology to assist cylinder manufacturers in the use of PolySlide cylinders but also has the internal testing facilities to validate most designs to our customers' satisfaction.
Polygon's in-house capabilities range from cycle testing, burst pressure chamber with video analysis of failure mechanisms, to in-use frictional analysis.
Polygon has also developed the first cylinder with Intrinsic Sensing Technology within an embedded electronic component to the composite laminate for finished cylinder assemblies.
Metal cylinder tubes are like a city slicker, one little hit and it's down for the count. Impingement just doesn't fight fair. When you have a tough job to do, count on PolySlide to get plain mad dog mean about fighting back.
Yeah, they can be a bit rough on the outside, but that smooth ID surface brings the promise of low friction actuation. Rest easy, pilgrim. We'll bring a little refinement to the wild frontier.
