low-friction liner
Explanation:
For loading and unloading materials efficiently (especially heavy granular or sticky materials), non-abrasive plastic panels are used in truck beds, rail cars, ship loading chutes, etc.

Typically these panels are made of ultra-high molecular weight (UHMW) polyethylene (see www.polyhisolidur.com/quicksilver.htm). However, since the material is not specified in your original document, "low-friction liner" should be a safe and sufficiently general term.
