What is a PTFE bearing pad?

A PTFE bearing pad is a slide plate made up of PTFE, 25% glass filled, material that provides a low coefficient of friction for most combinations of temperature and load. For most applications, PTFE, 25% Glass Filled, is adequate when the temperature is less than 400 degrees F.
