Hard to Open Sliding Hatch

Does anyone know what the recommended material is for siding hatch tracks ? The sliding hatch into my aft cabin is hard to open and close due to cracks in what looks like a plastic batten that the outward turned flange of the hatch rides on. This is capped with a teak strip that holds the hatch in place. I was thinking of cutting a strip of lexan to replace it. Is there a better choice for a smooth operation?
