Manufactured from a blend of premium nylon, glass fiber, and PTFE, Powerbands offer a high strength wear-ring for cylinder applications, including those with minimal lubrication. They are fully machined with cross-section tolerances of only ±0.001 in., which improves alignment and concentric operation of cylinder rods and pistons. Chamfered corners better accommodate cylinder housing grooves, further improving piston and rod alignment. Scarf-cut end gap reduces loss of bearing support that may occur during cylinder side-loading.
