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
Tufcot® Material Grades Chart
|T100||White||Water, Oil||Dimensionally stable bearing material for the use primarily in harmless fluids.|
|T100G||Dark Grey||Replace 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.
|T100M||Light Grey||Replace existing metallic or non-metallic bearing materials.||Self lubricating high performance bearing material.|
|T100MP||Light Grey||Replace existing metallic or non-metallic bearing materials in the marine sector.||Self lubricating high performance bearing material with low friction. Tufcot’s marine grade.|
|T200MP||Blue Grey||Replace 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:|
|T200G||Dark Grey||Replace existing metallic or non-metallic bearing materials where enhanced temperature is required.||Enhanced temperature version of T100G. Limited chemical resistance but capable of withstanding:|
|T200P||Brown||High slip properties means it is suitable for Wear Pad or Press Slide arm applications.||High slip properties. This is applicable for enhanced temperature applications.|
|T400G||Light Grey||This 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.|
|T600G||Dark Grey||This 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.|
|T100XPL||Grey/To Order||For 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.|
|T600||To order||Superior chemical resistance.|
- G –Graphite
- XPL – Special PTFE layer
- M- Molybdenum Disulphide
- PTFE – Polytetrafluoroethylene
