The PolySlide® and PolySight® products are supplied as cylinder tubes ready for assembly, or as a complete cylinder designed for your application. Our pneumatic and hydraulic cylinder tubing is available in standard sizes or can be designed to your requirements.
Low friction for reduced seal wear, so you won’t have to worry about replacements
Designed to withstand the most caustic of environments, so you can use them just about anywhere.
Combats denting with impingement resistance, so they’ll last longer and save you money
Non-conductive, meaning they are the safer option
PolySlide – PolySlide can be interchanged with any metallic cylinder material in a variety of tie-rod applications.

The bore surface of the PolySlide® cylinder improves seal wear by reducing friction. There are two types of friction that oppose each other in the bore surface: adhesion and interlocking friction. Adhesion Friction is the physical attraction of two smooth surfaces brought into close contact with each other. As the contact area increases, so does the adhesion between the surfaces. A smooth surface reduces the gap between the surfaces resulting in higher adhesion. Adhesion acts as a frictional force when the one object slides against the other. The friction between O-ring seals and bore surfaces increases significantly as the surface finish of the bore is reduced from 16 Ra to 6 Ra.
