Tufcot® is a composite engineering material manufactured from synthetic fibres and thermosetting resins.
All grades of Tufcot® are available with solid lubricant incorporated.
The various grades contain either Graphite, P.T.F.E or Molybdenum Disulphide dispersed evenly throughout the material, so that the wear of a components surface continually releases further lubricant.
Tufcot® offers the design engineer an attractive alternative to traditional materials used throughout industry for bushes, bearings, wear pads, and many more applications.
Tufcot® is only 1/6th the weight of steel, is easily machined and has exceptional dimensional stability, even in wet conditions.
