Manufacturing Extended Life High Temperature Resistant, Wear Resistant Textile Products for Use On Aluminum Extrusion Handling Systems

Founded in 1974, TUFF TEMP Corp. is a US manufacturer of woven high temperature resistant textile products. The TUFF TEMP product line was originally developed to be a replacement material for asbestos, for use primarily in the glass industry for hot end handling and conveyance.

Today's TUFF TEMP products have been uniquely engineered to have temperature resistance up to 1400 F / 760 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 (1,200 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.

Be it TUFF TEMP Roller Covers, Flight Bar Pads, Transfer Arm & Walking Beam Pads, Cooling Table Pads or TUFF TEMP Endless Transfer Belts – TUFF TEMP products have been developed for your industry.
