For applications above 400 degrees F, what material is recommended for slide plates?

What are reasons why the PTFE or Graphite pads peel off the backing plates?

November 3, 2011

In the majority of cases, bond between the material and its backing plate would become degraded in the presence of high temperatures. With PTFE, if the heat reaches to 350˚ F, the glue becomes weaker. For Graphite Slide Plates, the maximum temperature should be approximately 775˚ F.

What is the use of a slide plate?

December 1, 2010

The purpose of slide plates is to produce a low-coefficient of friction between a stationary support element and the moving pipe support component to reduce the forces generated as a result of pipe deflections during operation.
