Tufcot® T100 resin system is our standard grade resin, used in many general bearing applications. This system is provided in 5 different grades, each suited to different industries and types of applications.

T100 is often used in non-critical applications where a lubricant is either not required or recommended, such as an insulator. However, it can be used with the addition of different solid lubricants. This allows the self-lubricating nature of the Tufcot® material to work with the mating parts.

The reason our T100 grade is so effective is because it is able to operate to high temperatures and with a low friction value.
