Friction Material: TF1820

Technical Data

THERMOFIBER 1820 is our latest generation material designed to maximize strength and integrity of Gear Tooth Facings and agricultural torque-limiting devices. TF1820 is capable of withstanding significant shear and tensile forces due to high-fiber content along with proprietary fiber alignment technology to enhance heat dissipation and polish mating surfaces.
