Turcite® is a self-lubricating thermoplastic that is cost-effective, chemically resistant, wear-resistant, and can be used in a wide range of temperatures. There are two grades of Turcite®: Turcite® A and Turcite® X. Both grades of Turcite® are acetal-based materials, and their properties and applications are comparable to Delrin AF®. Turcite® materials are only available in rod form.
Notable Material Features
- Low cost
- High chemical resistance
- Moisture resistant
- Always oven annealed for stress-relief
Grades of Turcite®
Turcite® A (also known as Turcite ® TA)
Turcite® A is suitable for moderate to heavy loads at moderate speeds. It performs well under vibratory and dynamic loading and is readily machinable. Turcite® A has higher wear resistance than Turcite® X and has a maximum continuous service temperature of 180°F (80°C). Turcite® A is blue in color
Turcite® X (also known as Turcite® TX)
Turcite® X excels in low load and high speed applications. It can be easily machined and has lower friction than Turcite® A. Turcite® X has minimal hygroscopic characteristics and possesses low thermal expansion properties, resulting in a structurally stable material. It also has a maximum continuous service temperature of 180°F (80°C). Turcite® X is red in color.
