ToughMet Alloys for High Performance Valve Guides



Racing is all about pushing for higher levels of performance and durability of valve seats and guides. For more than 25 years our materials have helped racing engineers do just that. Materion offers a variety of ingenious alloys and composite materials that can keep valve guides and racing engines running at optimum efficiency longer than conventional materials.

Materion materials have been proven to improve results on the track. When reducing friction and increasing durability are your top requirements, ToughMet is the right alloy with properties that include:

  • Friction and wear resistance
  • High strength
  • Anti corrosive
  • Dimensional stability
  • Maintains properties at high temperatures¬†

ToughMet can meet your need for valve guides and other high performance racing applications including push rods, thrust washers,  shims and bearings.
