Tufcot® T200 – High Temperature
Tufcot’s T200 resin system is our higher temperature resin system, again a polyester resin system and used in applications where the customer requires a higher temperature capability than the T100 resin systems.
T200 can be used without lubricants or with the addition of solid lubricants as mentioned above, provides the self-lubricating nature of the material to reduce the operating friction with its mating parts.
T200 will operate to a maximum constant temperature of 120 degrees Celsius and gives a co-efficient of friction value of approx. 0.2 against stainless steel in dry running conditions.
This figure can be reduced to between 0.15 and 0.19 with the addition of Graphite, as in T200G grade (a Tufcot standard grade).
