Hydlar™ Z combines the properties of Nylon with the strength and wear resistance of Kevlar®. This material makes it possible to achieve low abrasiveness without sacrificing low wear rates. Hydlar™ Z’s tough, strong reinforcing material makes the end product extremely wear resistant without excessive galling to mating wear surface.
