PTFE Skidway Plate Configurations

We offer Crossflon® XF225 with dimples spread uniformly across the skidding surface. The purpose of the dimples is to retain Crossflon® XF500, an additional lubricant, during the construction periods and to assist in reducing the static and dynamic coefficient of friction.

Crossflon® skidway plates are generally manufactured with the edges of the Crossflon® XF225 chamfered to aid the transition of the timber skid shoes during a load-out or launch operation.
