Tufnol®

Tufnol® industrial laminates are engineering materials constructed from layers of fibrous reinforcement, such as paper, cotton or glass fabric. These layers are bonded together with high quality thermoset resin, producing the laminate with a number of beneficial properties. Tufnol® material is very strong with good rigidity whilst still being lightweight. Tufnol® material is also ideal for applications where electrical and thermal insulation is a requirement. Ensinger supply a comprehensive range of Tufnol® laminates, each offering distinct properties and benefits to suit a wide range of applications.
