Tecaform™ is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic offering high strength, stiffness and toughness. Tecaform™ is resistant to hot water, hydrocarbons and solvents, and it possesses good bearing and wear properties. It is available in natural and black grades. Tecaform™ is commonly used as bushings, rollers, wear strips and other applications requiring a combination of strength, low moisture absorption, chemical resistance and dimensional stability.
Tecaform™ is used in a wide variety of industrial applications requiring good strength and toughness, dimensional stability; wear resistance and the ability to operate in a wet environment with little absorption. Material handling, machinery and fluid handling are some of the common industries utilizing Tecaform™’s combination of properties. Typical applications are gears, wear strips, bushings, pump parts, fittings and rollers.
