Thermofiber 1600-MC2

Industrial Parts  /  TF1600-MC2

TF1600-MC2 is a high performance, high longevity, non-metallic composite material containing a significant percentage of aramid fiber. It can be considered as an alternative for sintered metal materials and offers many advantages: It will resist high energy inputs and is suitable for both dry and oil-immersed applications. It is not abrasive to the drum or rotor, is silent in operation and resists high pressures. The wear rate is low even at high temperatures. Additionally, due to our proprietary manufacturing process, we have eliminated the break-in requirement common to other high Kevlar facings in the market. No backing plate required for most clutch applications. TF1600-MC2 is available in thicknesses from 0.6mm to 7.5mm.

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

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS Car & Motorcycle Competition Clutches, Heavy Vehicle Clutches, Clutch Buttons, Industrial Brakes & Clutches
