    Rulon® XL│ Exceptional Wear for Vacuum Service

When your application involves aluminum substrates, depend on Rulon XL to provide significantly-enhanced wear, even better than other materials.  Tan colored and compatible with a range of mating surfaces, Rulon XL presents excellent outgassing capability for use in vacuum applications.

Concerned about galling soft mating services?  Simply a non-issue with Rulon XL, since its non-abrasive attributes actually enhance frictional performance to prevent galling.  And with an ability to combine extreme load tolerance and chemical resistance, Rulon XL outshines in a variety of military, electrical and chemical environments.
