What is PTFE and why is it a must for Sliders ahead of all other plastic and felt pads

Teflon® is a brand name of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), a solid polymer that is considered to be one of the world's most slippery substances. Accidentally invented in 1938 in a laboratory in Deepwater, New Jersey, in the United States, PTFE has applications in a wide range of areas, including household goods, the aerospace industry, electronics and industrial processes.

PTFE also possesses very low frictional properties, which is expressed as frictional coefficient. This measurement is relative and differs according to the materials brought into contact to generate or simulate friction. In terms of plastics, friction is usually observed against polished steel. To put the low friction coefficient of PTFE into proper perspective, it is the only known synthetic surface material to which the toe pads of a gecko fail to stick. This quality makes it suitable for manufacturing parts that need to resist friction and would include use as a slippery foot for heavy furniture.
