Thermofiber 1600

Industrial Parts  /  TF1600

THERMOFIBER 1600 is a unique and affordable kevlar designed for light, medium and heavy duty, for use in both wet and dry applications. Developed with a new revolutionary formula, this material offers exceptionally low wear rates, incredibly high & stable frictional co-efficient and smoothness of running, even at elevated temperatures. TF1600 polishes mating surfaces, virtually eliminating wear -- all with no break-in period.

Superior strength means that backing plates are not required in many performance clutch applications.

Besides its operating characteristics, THERMOFIBER 1600 has been designed with ecology in mind. The material itself runs virtually dust-free and the manufacturing process employs no hazardous contaminating products or byproducts such as copper or ceramics.

AVAILABLE FORMS Clutch Facings and Buttons, Disc Brake Pads, Gear Tooth Facings, Radius Blocks, Flat Sheets, Special Molded Pieces
