Replacing Steel & Other Materials
Tufcot® composite materials have an advantage over traditional materials and offer a alternative approach to bearing design.
Our composite bearing materials eliminated the need for steels that corrode and other materials that are both expensive and can deteriorate over time.
Tufcot® composite materials do not corrode, are not affected by UV or changes in humidity, that are not bio-degradable, need no maintenance and have an infinite lifespan!
