Composite Materials for the Marine Industry

With over 35 years of experience in the manufacture of resin bonded composite materials, Tufcot’s current customer base is very extensive from road and rail vehicle manufacturers, aerospace equipment manufacturers, hydro power generation, to food processing equipment manufacturers.

However, our T100MP Marine material has been specifically formulated for the marine environment.

It is ideally suited to the operating conditions and working environment of such bearings as rudder & pintle bushes which can be either water, oil, grease lubricated or dry running conditions.
