With most lubricants Tufcot has a low coefficient of friction which reduces both bearing power loss and the rate of wear.

Satisfactory bearing operation with liquid lubricants depends upon the interaction between the lubricant and the bearing surface.

Almost any fluid can be considered for use as a lubricant with Tufcot, although under suitable conditions water and aqueous solutions give the best results.

Dynamic friction coefficients in the region of 0.003 have been recorded for Tufcot with water lubrication.
