overview of turcite® — turcite® is a high-quality, internally lubricated material that is ideal for applications with demanding wear and friction requirements. its low water absorption enables components made with turcite® to retain their integrity over long periods.
turcite® rods comes in two standard grades:
turcite® a is a resilient formulation that performs well under vibratory and dynamic loading. this material is similar to delrin® af, but made from copolymer resin to avoid centerline porosity. this grade exhibits higher wear resistance than turcite® x.
turcite® x has minimal hygroscopic characteristics and low thermal expansion properties, resulting in a structurally stable material. this grade excels in low load and high-speed applications due to it's high pv rating and lower coefficient of friction than turcite® a.
turcite® b slydway is a linear bearing material used in machine tools to improve efficiency through low friction and reduced stick-slip effect in transitions while maintaining positioning accuracy and vibration damping.
