The Original Equipment Manufacturer of a Twin Row Seed Opener approached RTP Company with a complex part design that required extreme abrasion resistance. The part, which is designed to guide seeds to the outermost area of the wing for perfect placement, was originally made from machined neat UHMWPE, but was expensive and time consuming to produce.

The recommended compound, RTP 200 ABR, offered the required abrasion resistance and low soil buildup in wet conditions for the Twin Row Seed Opener, and at a reduced part cost.
The benefits to the manufacturer included:
- injection moldable
- UV stabilized
