Tufcot® T400 – Fire Retardant

T400 resin system is our fire retardant grade of resin.

A polyester resin system including fire retardant additives and used in applications in the mining sector and the oil and gas sectors.

When exposed to a naked flame the material will burn, once the source of combustion is removed the material will self-extinguish within a few seconds.

This material can again be used with the addition of solid lubricants as with the other resin systems.

T400G grade can operate to a constant temperature of 100 degrees Celsius and will operate with a co-efficient of friction value of 0.14 to 0.15 against stainless steel in dry running conditions.
