Original application May 9, 1956, Ser. No. 583,656, new
The bonding layer 22 secures the surface layer 23 to the
backing member 21. The ?bers and/ or ?laments of the
low friction surface layer 23 is made from fluorocarbon
resin, preferably polytetra?uoroethylene commonly sold

This invention pertains to low friction bearing material,
under the well-known name Te?on. The ?bers and/or
?laments are made into threads along with ?bers and/ or
?laments of a bondable material. The threads are woven
or otherwise interrelated into a cloth-like layer contain
