Material Grades for Tufcot® Composite Materials

The Tufcot® range of material grades resin systems incorporate different additives and/or fillers along with different fabric reinforcing’s to achieve the end product our customers require.

Tufcot currently has 4 main resin systems in use.

However, to ensure we are in a position to meet the requirements of new applications, our R and D department are developing other systems to compliment the current range.

Tufcot® Material Grades Chart

GradeColourApplicationProperties
T100WhiteWater, OilDimensionally stable bearing material for the use primarily in harmless fluids.
T100GDark GreyReplace existing metallic or non-metallic bearing materials.Self lubricating version of T100. An inexpensive general purpose hard wearing material. Tufcot’s standard grade.
Tufcot also produces T100GX with extra graphite.
T100MLight GreyReplace existing metallic or non-metallic bearing materials.Self lubricating high performance bearing material.
T100MPLight GreyReplace existing metallic or non-metallic bearing materials in the marine sector.Self lubricating high performance bearing material with low friction. Tufcot’s marine grade.
T200MPBlue GreyReplace existing metallic or non-metallic bearing materials in the marine sector where enhanced temperature is required.Enhanced temperature version of T100M + PTFE. Limited chemical resistance but capable of withstanding:

  • 100 degrees centrigrade contant
  • 120 degrees centrigrade intermittent
T200GDark GreyReplace existing metallic or non-metallic bearing materials where enhanced temperature is required.Enhanced temperature version of T100G. Limited chemical resistance but capable of withstanding:

  • 100 degrees centrigrade contant
  • 120 degrees centrigrade intermittent
T200PBrownHigh slip properties means it is suitable for Wear Pad or Press Slide arm applications.High slip properties. This is applicable for enhanced temperature applications.
T400GLight GreyThis grade is suitable for underground mining applications and anywhere with the potential for fire.Tufcot’s 400 range of resin is for fire retardance but is still self lubricating.
T600GDark GreyThis grade is suitable for sewage, acid pickling baths and acid vapour environments.Tufcot’s 600 range is a superior chemical resistance grade at lower temperatures than T200G.
T100XPLGrey/To OrderFor use in high slip applications for example Wear Pads.Special PTFE layer incorporated in wearing surface which creates a very low co-efficient of friction.
T600To orderSuperior chemical resistance.

KEY:

  • G –Graphite
  • XPL – Special PTFE layer
  • M- Molybdenum Disulphide
  • PTFE – Polytetrafluoroethylene
