Our company, Teknikprodukter, has been working for many years with Tufcot® and we have several success stories from using the material.

We have applied the material in iron ore wagons up in northern Sweden, which tells a little bit about the kind of environments it could be used. Tufcot® has also been mounted in cold rolling mills and replaced several metal applications.

Our business area, Scandinavian Friction, will now focus more on the energy and marine segments. We have had great experience replacing traditional bushings and bearings in these kind of environments.

We are looking forward to continue our Preferred Partnership with Tufcot Engineering Ltd and to develop our business together.
