Turcite® is a quality, self-lubricating thermoplastic material (with properties resembling Delrin AF) which is ideal for applications with demanding wear and friction requirements. Turcite® is heat and chemical resistant and has excellent wear characteristics. With its low water absorption, Turcite® creates little friction, enabling it to retain integrity throughout its lifespan.

Turcite® A is a high-quality, internally lubricated material that is ideal for demanding applications with wear and friction requirements. It has low water absorption which enables it to retain its integrity over long periods of time. Turcite® A is readily machinable and works well under vibratory and dynamic loading.
