Thermofiber 1200

TF1200 is a ProTec Friction standard formulation which is suitable for light medium duty. It is a rigid material, with low wear and very stable friction performance. The material’s main composition consists of phenol resins with a NBR bonding system, short fibers, friction modifiers and fillers.

TF1200 is fully cured and suitable for bonding and riveting.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS Agricultural and Building Machinery, Calipers for Industrial Applications, Coned Segments for Machinery, Friction Washers, Gear Discs for Industrial Devices, Industrial Clutches, Rings Segments for Machinery

AVAILABLE FORMS Disc Brake Pads, Gear Tooth Facings, Flat Sheets, Special Molded Pieces
