Material Description

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

  • Self-lubricating
  • 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.
