Our fastest growing grade of material used in many applications worldwide, where the customer requires Tufcot’s lowest co-efficient of friction values, is the material Grade T100G XPL.

Tufcot® T100G XPL

Every T100 range of materials uses a polyester based resin system and the various grades we produce has a different lubricant that is added to further enhance the standard resin range and open this up to more applications at a better co-efficient of friction level.

The addition of the XPL onto our standard T100G grade shows the presence of a PTFE layered fabric that is incorporated onto the wear surface.

Our T100G XPL Grade can operate at up to 100 degrees Celsius in certain applications and conditions, but we recommend a maximum of 80 degrees Celsius for constant running applications.

Tufcot have recorded figures of between 0.07 and 0.09 for the co-efficient of friction value against steel.

This makes it our best performing material for it’s low co-efficient of friction and low wear rate

The Grade T100G XPL can be used in many standard applications in use for Wear Pads, Bearings and Wear Ring applications.
