TUFNOL Grade 2F/14 

Cotton fabric laminate

Medium weave cotton/phenolic resin laminated plastic

(SRBF - Synthetic resin Bonded Fabric)


For electromechanical applications.

TUFNOL Grade 2F/14 is a cotton fabric laminate with enhanced electrical properties, specially developed to meet the requirements of the relevant British Standard specification.



What is Grade 2F/14 used for?

It is used for electro-mechanical applications where the benefits of mechanical toughness and wear resistance are combined with a need for good insulation resistance.  Typical uses include slot wedges, stator packings, coil formers and operating arms.
