We offer the best product range of Stainless Steel Based Textiles, FLIGHT BAR PADS and WALKING BEAM PADS.
Tuff Temp Corp. offers a complete line of Textile products (Woven Tapes & Sleeves, Knitted Sleeves, Non-Woven Needle Punched Felts & Ropes) based on Stainless Steel (316L) fibers whice offer unmatched heat resistance (up to 650 C 1200 F) and excellent performance in many glass making applications such as Automotive Glass, Glass Bottles and Cathode Ray Tube (TV) Glass. Main benefits include: Softness, Flexibility, Excellent Abrasion Resistance, Durability & Very High Temperature Resistance.
Available in nominal 12" (12 mm) thick and nominal 1" (25 mm) thick multiple plied woven constructions, our TUFF TEMP high-density flight bar pads have proven to be the industry's longest lasting and most durable Flight Bar Pads. In starting out with tough mechanically enhanced 100% Kevlar yarns, all TUFF TEMP woven products have inherent cut and abrasion resistance. However, this durability is significantly enhanced in our Flight Bar Pads through use of dense, multiple plied constructions. Our 12" (12 mm) thick pads are comprised of 8 dense plys of woven Kevlar, and our 1" (25 mm) thick pads are comprised of a full 16 woven plys. TUFF TEMP Pad durability is also significantly enhanced from application of our value-added treatments, called Wear Gard or Wear Gard Plus, for conveyance of your Hottest & Heaviest weight extrusions. Applied though a heated, high tension curing range, our protective Wear Gard treatment imparts added cut and abrasion resistance to the base material. It also makes the pads stiffer, making them ideal for fabricating, while substantially reducing the risk of fraying. TUFF TEMP Flight Bar Pads can be effectively bonded to your equipment with good industrial grade contact cement. This eliminates the risk of potential scratches associated with countersunk screw heads that are typically used for attaching other types of handling system materials. It is our pleasure to supply you with No Charge product samples for head to head comparison testing. This is the best way for us to prove our value to you, and we welcome the opportunity to do so!
Although Transfer Arms and Walking Beams do not typically see temperatures or abrasion as great as that seen on the Run Out Table, the process is still highly dynamic in nature and it requires a material with a high degree of temperature resistance, abrasion resistance and cushioning. TUFF TEMP Transfer Arm Pads and Walking Beam Pads are ideally suited for this purpose. TUFF TEMP 2-ply, nominal 14" (6 mm) thick and nominal 38" (9 mm) thick 100% Kevlar belting, Wear Gard or Wear Gard Plus treated, provide outstanding durability and wear life for your handling system. Higher thickness, multiple ply pads are available if needed, although they are not often required for this area of you process. All pads can be fabricated to your specific width and length requirements, up to a 24" (610 mm) width maximum, with no defined limitation on length.
