Aluminum Market

Today’s TUFF TEMP products have been uniquely engineered to have temperature resistance up to 1400º F / 760º C and possess unsurpassed cut and abrasion resistance. Our roots supplying the glass industry have served us well for the aluminum extrusion market. Glass manufacturing processes tend to be abrasive and very hot (1,200º Fahrenheit / 659 Celsius and higher), and remain at higher temperatures for longer periods of time than those seen in most aluminum extrusion plants.

In addition to superior heat resistance, TUFF TEMP products have unmatched durability. In head to head testing at a number of the largest US aluminum extrusion plants, TUFF TEMP has consistently shown longer wear life than the leading needle punched felt materials, longer wear life than woven aramid blended materials, and longer wear life than comparable thickness carbon blocks. This performance directly translates into longer continuous production runs and less maintenance down time for our customers.

In addition to superior wear life, TUFF TEMP also possesses a very low thermal conductivity, so it will not leave unacceptable “shadow spots” like carbon. The more forgiving TUFF TEMP fabric also eliminates the scratches, dents and streaking commonly found with rigid carbon blocks.
