Tufcot® wear pads are used in sliding bearing applications, such as: Conveyor guides, Press guides, Wear strips & Rubbing strips, Guide shoes, Scrapers and Friction Plates.

Our wear pads can be produced from almost all of our range of material grades. These grades offer exceptionally low coefficients of friction for applications where lubrication is not permitted. This allows for full dry running capability.

In many instances they can be self-lubricating, with the incorporation of solid lubricants such as Graphite Molybdenum di Sulphide, PTFE or a combination of lubricant fillers.

Thanks to our comprehensive machining capability, we can machine, drill and groove our wear pads to suit our customer’s specific requirements. Pads of up to 3 metres in length and 1 metre wide can be accommodated on our state of the art CNC router.
