|TuffTEmp represented by NOKTA METAL LTD in Turkey and neighbouring countries, was formed in 1974. At that
time the United States was realizing the health risks inherent
in the use and handling of asbestos, and government health
agencies soon mandated the elimination of all asbestos related
products. This created a need within the glass industry, where
asbestos had long been used as a heat resistant material
within the hot end of many manufacturing
The problem of replacing asbestos was solved by developing a family of high quality, ultra high temperature resistant non-asbestos conveyor belting, narrow tapes & ropes, seamless tubing and fabricated pad products (under the trade names of TUFF TEMP and HiTemp). Aluminium Extrusion Press Handling Conveyor Systems - Glass Manufacturing Tempering
Each of densely woven or felt type TuffTEmp and HiTemp products have been uniquely engineered to meet the critical needs of handling hot end manufacturing processes such as primary and secondary glass manufacturing, and aluminium extruding. We have proven temperature resistance up to 1400º F / 760º C, and our HiTemp line of products has shown even greater temperature resistance. Our products in particular is very effective in high wear applications, where fiberglass and other more brittle high temperature materials are inadequate. HiTemp products are more ideal for static, ultra high temperature pad and gasketing applications.
Over the past 25 years, TUFF TEMP has become a global supplier and the world leader today in manufacturing and supplying heat and abrasion resistant textile products made of para-aramid fibers. Today, our various products have become the world standard for hot end handling and conveyance.
