Turcite is a PolyTetraFluoroEthylene (PTFE) based bearing material with low friction, used mainly for machine tool industry linear bearing applications. It provided low friction, stick-slip free operation, long life, and minimum wear. Turcite is a dimensionally stable, maintenance free and can be operated with or without lubrication. Turcite rods are cost-effective, self-Lubricating & long-wearing material.
Usually, one side or both the sides are etched depending on the application, which makes the sheet adhere to an adhesive.
Some of the common applications of Turcite material is as bearing, sleeves, rollers, thrust washers, maintenance of machinery, and even gears sometimes.
