Turcite Sheets are a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) based bearing material with low friction for machine tool industry linear bearing applications. PTFE based compounds are resistant to virtually all media, cutting fluids and slideway oils. Additionally, these compounds feature outstanding wear resistance and friction characteristics. Turcite B outperforms key competitive materials for low friction. Turcite Sheet were developed to meet the needs of machine tool manufacturers looking to improve machine tool efficiencies through low friction material technology and reduce stick-slip effect in machine transitions while still maintaining positioning accuracy and vibration damping.
