Stiction - RTP Company Wear and Friction Technologies


Reduce Stiction, or “stick-slip phenomenon” by selecting materials based on our Glide FactorSM data.

Stiction is the term used to describe a part that repeatedly slips and starts moving, then stops moving. High frequency stick-slip (stiction) often leads to audible squeaking.

With custom engineered compounds, stiction issues are “tunable” in controlled movement devices such as single-use injection devices, locks and latches, consumer packaging, and industrial doors and windows.
