Reduced Friction and Improved Performance for Elastomers



ModyGlide™ technology modifies the surface properties of elastomers to reduce friction and increase durability. ModyGlide™ is a permanent modification to the surfaces of elastomeric materials, leading to a significant decrease in coefficient of friction.

All elastomeric materials regardless of shape or size can be treated with ModyGlide™.

ModyGlide™ protects treated elastomeric parts and can be subjected to repeated cleaning and sterilization cycles, retaining their low friction surface, due to the permanency of the treatment. Along with this, it improves chemical resistance, reduces swelling and fouling, and prolongs service life giving you greater reliability while reducing overall service costs.
