Teeters photot looks like truck bed liner. Goes on thick and then cures into a bumpy leveled surface. Used to use them on my throwing shoes in track for hammer and shotput. Very durable, plastic like once cured.

Truck Bed Liner is a mixture of polyurea and polyurethane.  I don't think Teeter is using that. 

 

Silver Vein powder coating is a polyester with a 400° cure.. Doesnt say F or C, my guess is F, C is pretty hot.

I'll add this to the history of bearing runners in case there are any other thrifty sorts out there...

 

I had some left over vinyl flooring - in Canada it's called "vinyl plank flooring" because it's 4 ft long, 8 inches wide and has a textured wood grain look and finish to it. I cut two strips and used it on my 13.1" dob (see pic). How did it work? I think great! Very smooth controlled movement in altitude. Maybe being cheap is the mother of all invention?
