Airbus Defence and Space’s A400M airlifter is a cost-effective, high-speed turboprop aircraft specifically designed to meet the harmonised needs of European NATO nations, as well as the requirements of international air forces.
Tufnol Composites Ltd. has accreditation to the stringent Aerospace Quality Standard AS 9100 Revision C
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 serves an international market in the marine sector. Resin materials are unaffected by sea water, are water lubricated, capable of very precise design and highly accurate stress calculation. Our materials are approved by:
Tufnol materials are synonymous with the electrical industry and have always played a key part in ensuring safety in the critical operation of low, medium and high voltage electrical equipment.
All materials in the Tufnol range have electrical insulating properties to varying degrees. However these grades all possess superior dielectric strength:
The unique properties of Tufnol’s high resin content materials and cotton fabric laminates are in great demand for bearings and other components on floating platforms and offshore drilling platforms etc. Operating both under and above water, Tufnol has a 40 year proven track record in the offshore marine field.
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.
In Scotland's industrial heartland, Tufnol East Kilbride is able to go the extra mile for its customers. As a compact operation, Tufnol Scotland offers customers fast turn-around, rapid response orders and machining to order. Tufnol Scotland specialises in small runs of components with a friendly, flexible approach and of course, the legendary Tufnol quality.
Tufnol laminated plastics and resin materials are selected by blue chip companies the world over because of their reliability, durability and versatility. They are indispensable to most branches of engineering with approvals from:
Tufnol is committed to quality and customer satisfaction.
We continually invest in the newest technologies, for example
Tufnol’s versatility and durability are legendary and it is an ideal material for machining so that many unconventional and innovative uses are found for it in a variety of sectors.
Surgical chisel handles are made from Tufnol because it is unaffected by continual sterilising in autoclaves. It is also shatterproof so that no flakes or chips from it can break off from it during use and contaminate a wound.
Tufnol is adaptable and extremely robust, two qualities which lend it specifically to many unconventional uses in a variety of sectors.
A hidden camera for recording TV footage at test cricket matches was mounted inside an epoxy glass Tufnol tube which then replaced the middle stump. The tube is almost indestructible and can therefore withstand strikes from the ball and reliably protect the technology.
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.
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.
