Super tough and slippery

Review Summary

I got some of this to use as a runner on a jig for my table saw. It wears so much better than wood it's not even funny and it's a lot more friction free. I'm not sure if it ever really wears at all.The biggest advantage of using this stuff over wood, as a table saw runner, is that it is stable and won't expand or contract with changes in humidity. I purchased this in sheet form so I could cut my own custom runners, and save money.
For just a few dollars more you can get several runners out of this 4 inch sheet.
