Phenolic paper laminated plastics are strong, rigid and very economical. They have good electrical insulating properties and are used in a wide range of electrical installations in equipment where rigid electrical insulation is required.
The higher specification grades are chosen for higher voltage and for greater electrical stability in conditions of varying humidity. The lower cost grades are often used for insulation components with low power voltages and below.
The impact strength of phenolic paper grades is not as high as materials in other groups and they are not usually chosen where toughness, bearing properties or high stress carrying capabilities are required. However, the lowest cost grade in this group Grade 1P/13 represents excellent value as rigid non-metallic materials and is used in a very wide range of less demanding applications.
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.
Tufnol is so versatile, reliable, durable and an ideal material for machining that many unconventional and innovative uses are found for it in a variety of sectors.
Trebor mints are precision-cut in order to reduce waste and maintain uniformity. Tufnol is used to make the backing plate for the 20 circular cutting knives that perform this process. It is ideal because of its high impact resistance, accuracy and dimensional stability which allow high repeatability giving the maximum yield.
