British Standards for TUFNOL Sheets

 

 

(Click here for Tube and Rod specifications.)

The current British Standard for laminated sheets is:

BS EN 60893 Insulating materials. Industrial rigid laminated sheets based on thermosetting resins for electrical purposes.

Tufnol offers grades against many of the types specified in this standard. However, some types are outside our product range, whilst others are not included, as they are not widely used.
