It's some special mix they apparently came up with themselves...you might try asking them.

You can use a material called Delrin, which is the DuPont brand name. It is a self-lubricating (like Teflon) tough plastic that is easily machinable. Almost nothing will stick to it. It can be bought as round-stock off of the internet in many colors. I believe that is what a lot of frame sliders are made of.

I will make my own sliders soon since no one seems to make them for a 94-97 ZX-9R. I am going to use Delrin. In fact, I have some left over from an experimental mold project at work. Envision a piece of Delrin about 42"x14"x4" weighing about 80 lbs and costing $1500! It makes great female mold material, Nothing will stick to it, and I mean NOTHING. /images/icons/smile.gif

I have a walk-in-freezer full of used condoms - should I melt them down and go into the Frame Slider Biz?

Can you make the whole bike out of that stuff? Then you could drop it all day and never have to worry about it!

Who cares? You could just run it up to like 100mph and jump off...Have contests to see who can slide the bike the furthest../images/icons/smile.gif Think of all the cool stunts you could come up with if ya had an "indestructable" bike!
