Tufcot® is highly recommended for use where lubricants are undesirable, erratic, intermittent or non-existent.
Where the maintenance of lubricant films is difficult, Tufcot® has been found to give improved performance.
The grade T100, in particular, has an extremely low rate of moisture absorption and therefore negligible dimensional change, making it ideally suited to use in submerged water applications.
Tufcot® is only 1/6 the weight of steel, is easily machined, contains no harmful or toxic materials and has exceptional dimensional stability, even in wet conditions.
It offers the design engineer an attractive alternative for bushes, bearings, wear pads and many more applications.
