This group includes glass fabric reinforced laminated plastics with wide-ranging properties, mostly determined by the types of resin used to bond the laminations. These materials are generally characterised by very high strength properties, good temperature resistance and good dimensional stability.
The TUFNOL range includes grades with exceptional temperature resistance, first class dielectric properties, good resistance to tracking, assessed flammability and superb structural strength and toughness.
Epoxy glass materials are used in a very wide range of technically demanding applications. Other glass laminates tend to be used for more specialised purposes, or where higher temperature capabilities are required.
With over 80 years of experience in continually moving forward with the technology of materials development, Tufnol still finds thousands of new uses each year. Development is ongoing and our range of materials covers all grades and forms of laminated plastics, composites and resin bonded materials for engineering applications.
As an extremely cost effective method of producing plastics components in small to medium batch quantities, machining is suited to many engineering applications. It is also a practical method of producing complex components in resin bonded composites with high quality fibre reinforcements, which are not suited to moulding in sophisticated shapes.
Our technical capability combines high performance up-to-date CNC equipment with an unmatched depth of experience in machining laminated plastics and resin bonded materials and other engineering plastics.
Our Quality systems are an integral part of our culture. We hold registration to ISO 9001:2008 and our Quality Management System complies AS/EN 9100:2009. We are Signatory to SC 21, the British Aerospace industry programme promoting Supply Chain Excellence in the 21st century and hold many major company approvals.
