The TTN Pad Advantage
TTN CODING EXPLAINED
Each pad sold by Automark has a coding system on the back of the pad placed there by TTN. The graphic to the right is an example of this coding system and is explained below.
- First digit series (72 in the illustration to the right) – Model of the pad which can be selected in the pad catalogue.
- Second digit series (5 in the illustration to the right) – Hardness of the pad based on shore rating scale 00-10. 00 is the softest pads we offer and 10 is the hardest, with 5 representing medium hardness. Most of the pads sold are 5 shore.
- Third digit (1 in the illustration to the right) is based on the quality of the pad 1-4. Our anti-static pads are long life and reduce static dissipation and so the number 3 will be in this spot.
- The last number (5 in the illustration to the right) denotes the thread type in metric system. Our pads are made using 5 or 6 mm screws, so most of the time we will see 5 mm pads being stocked and used in this case.
