Plastic slide guide

Are you looking for a plastic slide guide? You are in the right place! Ridderflex manufactures them custom-made, amongst others in polyethylene. Our sliding guides are mainly applied in drive systems.

The advantage of a plastic slide guide

Wear always occurs at places where contact occurs. Especially if metal is used. When a chain runs on a metal guide, it is essential to lubricate regularly. A plastic guide profile guarantees optimal running properties and a very high wear resistance. With a plastic guide profile, a quiet, easy run and long-lasting functionality is realised.

Ridderflex manufactures your plastic guide profiles amongst others of HMPE or UHMWPE. This material is suitable for use in the food industry and has a few known properties:

  • very wear resistant and impact resistant;
  • excellent sliding properties;
