Tufcot Promotes its Standard Grade T100G Polymer Based Composite

Tufcot's T100G

Considered Tufcot’s standard grade, T100G is a polyester based composite which includes graphite solid lubricant evenly dispersed throughout the material to reduce the co-efficient of friction.  T100G is used in over 60% of all Tufcot product applications.

The company says that a significant advantage is T100G’s competitive price. Graphite is the most inexpensive of all Tufcot's solid lubricant additives.

Tufcot adds that the benefits of the material are as follows:

  • High Strength/Weight Ratio
  • Natural Low Coefficient of Friction
  • 1/6 Weight of Steel
  • No Harmful Toxic Materials
  • Excellent Bearing Material
  • Hard-Wearing
  • Virtually no water swell <0.1% volumetric
  • Almost Any Fluid Can Be Used as a Lubricant
  • Easily Machined to Clients Exact Specifications
  • Exceptional Dimensional Stability, Even in Wet Conditions

The material can be used in the following sectors:

  • Marine
  • Rail
  • Oil and Gas
  • Hydraulics
  • Construction equipment
  • Structural Bearings
