Rulon® 123 │ FDA, USD, and NSF Compliant

Rulon 123

Looking for a material that is non-abrasive, chemical resistant and FDA, USD, and NSF compliant?  It’s as easy as 1-2-3 with Rulon 123. Known for a high resistance to deformation, low friction and good thermal and electrostatic dissipation, the material is also compatible with most mating surfaces. It features a self-lubricating design and has a maximum operating temperature of 550°F (300°C).

Presented in a glossy black color, this non-abrasive compound works exceptionally well with soft surfaces such as stainless steel, and is available in rod or tube, sheet and tape, or custom configurations.  Rulon 123 combines good value with excellent durability.

We can help you choose the right Rulon for your application.
