Special thicknesses can be readily made to order, subject to minimum quantities.
Standard sheet size is 1200 x 1200mm approximately. Sheets 1525 x 1200mm approximately can also be made to order.
Thicknesses below 1.0mm have a special matt finish.
Minimum production quantities may apply for certain items.
Sizes available may be subject to amendment without notice.
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.
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.
