Tufnol product overview
Tufnol composite materials are used extensively in numerous railway applications wherever toughness, electrical strength, wear resistance or controlled fire properties is required. Meeting the safety and quality requirements demanded in this industry sector.
Tufnol serves an international market in the marine sector. High resin content components are used across a wide spectrum of applications from bearings for small leisure craft to resin based components and resin sheet materials used for ocean going cruisers and for work boats.
Tufnol materials are synonymous with the electrical industry. From the early days of insulation to the present day, Tufnol has played an enormous part in ensuring safety in the critical operation of low, medium and high voltage electrical equipment.
Tufnol laminates provide a simple and cost-effective solution to this construction problem with simple insulating components which isolate dissimilar metals and prevent destructive, corrosion-inducing electrical currents from flowing.
The ability of Tufnol resin and resin sheet materials to be effectively lubricated with water is a major advantage. In many applications, design is simplified and the cost reduced because components can be lubricated by the fluid in which they are operating.
