Tufnol is the byword for quality in laminated plastics and resin based materials for engineering applications. It was invented here in the UK and its development to meet modern engineering demands continues to keep it abreast of 21st century technology.
TUFNOL is a proprietary brand of non-metallic material used to make engineering components for a wide range of uses. This type of material is known as 'synthetic resin bonded laminated plastic', and is made from layers of paper, cotton cloth or woven glass fibre cloth, dipped in resin, then compressed and bonded together in a hot press. It is a strong, hard material, made in a number of different grades with varying properties and uses.
Tufnol Composites Ltd. is not a company that rests on its laurels. Since our inception in the 1920s we have prioritised the development and production of new materials, created special materials for specific purposes and generated many for bespoke customer projects.
Tufnol’s focus on quality and performance has helped to build confidence in a multitude of engineering sectors in relation to non-metallic materials and has contributed significantly to the wonderful achievements in engineering and technology from which the world benefits today.
