I am looking for a substitute for Rulon because of the cost and I am wondering if there is something that will accomplish the same thing without being so pricey. Application has reciprocal movement only without rotation and very little load of any sort. It needs to have good slip stick resistance and dimensional tolerance. Ertalyte TX seems to be a reasonable substitute but I am left wondering if it's capabilities are sufficient.
