Teflon Friction Reducing Polymer
Reduce your friction boost your power.
HEAD asked DuPont to develop a material with a low-friction contact surface that would enable strings to slide though a racquet's grommets with almost no friction. With little resistance, the strings are able to maintain their energy during ball impact, providing more power.
Friction is a force that holds back the movement of a string when it comes into contact with a grommet. The new HEAD grommets with Teflon friction reducing polymer create a self-lubricating effect in the base material, allowing the strings to slide through the grommets with nearly no friction for much less energy loss and much more power.
The Teflon friction reducing polymer provides a low-friction contact surface, enabling the strings to slide through the grommets with nearly no friction. Moving without resistance, the strings maintain their energy during ball impact, providing more power. During the stringing process, the teflon frction reducing polymer in the grommet system provides even and consistent tension. The HEAD grommet system takes away the friction between the grommet and string, resulting in true tension and a larger sweet spot!
"The DuPont Teflon friction reducing polymer is one of the premier innovations on the market today, and we're extremely proud and excited to be teaming with this brand" said Robert Marte, Executive Vice President of HEAD Racquetsports.
