Tufcot is highly recommended for use where lubricants are undesirable, erratic, intermittent or none existent.
Where the maintenance of lubricant films is difficult Tufcot has been found to give improved performance.
Most grades of Tufcot have an extremely low rate of moisture absorption and therefore negligible dimensional change, making it suitable for use in submerged water applications.
Tufcot is only 1/6 the weight of steel, is easily machined, contains no harmful or toxic materials and has exceptional dimensional stability, even in wet conditions.
It offers the design engineer an attractive alternative for bushes, bearings, wear pads and many more applications.
