Tufcot – why Seawork?

Some of the Tufcot® composite materials range

After the Marketing Team at Tufcot conducted research of the best UK Marine Exhibitions to exhibit at, Seawork International came out on top. The event is a 'one stop shop' for buyers, providing access to the commercial marine and workboat markets.

Tufcot is the sole Tufcot® composite materials manufacturer. Tufcot® is a composite engineering material manufactured from synthetic fibres and thermosetting resins, offering high strength/weight ratios, a naturally low coefficient of friction, self-lubrication & significant weight reductions.

Tufcot’s marketing goals are towards the UK market and towards the marine sector for 2018, so choosing Seawork was a natural progression from general engineering exhibitions towards a UK based Maritime exhibition.

Greg Majchrzak, Tufcot, explained, “Tufcot is focussing its Marketing efforts towards the Marine sector in the UK and Overseas for 2018-2020 and we saw Seawork as the perfect opportunity to show our materials and products at our first ever Marine Exhibition. Due to it’s lightweight, no maintenance and almost minimal water swell Tufcot® is ideal for the Marine sector applications.”

Seawork International will start to give Tufcot® the brand recognition it needs to build up work/references in the UK market.

Why choose Tufcot in the Marine Sector? Tufcot® materials, range T100MP, is Lloyds approved for Rudder and Rudder Pintle bearings and the company is on the verge of announcing our T100MP range of material for class approval DNV-GL. By utilising our own internal test rig, we have managed to make sure our material is up to the required specification for both class approvals.

Tufcot is ideal in the marine sector because:

  • Less than 0.1% volumetric swell of the material - these figures were recorded for our Lloyds approval certification
  • Naturally low co-efficient of friction
  • No maintenance
  • Exceptional Dimensional Stability, Even in Wet Conditions
  • 1/6th the weight of steel.

Tufcot® is an ideal choice to replace conventional materials, our turnaround is fast as we have stock levels in to suit the relevant sizes.
