Main characteristics:- Tufnol laminates are, are made from layers of fabric or paper, pressed and bonded together with resin, to make a strong, tough engineering material. Tufnol Laminates are chosen because they have - Good strength to weight ratio - Rigidity - Electrical insulation - Wear resistance - Toughness - Impact resistance - Resistance to chemical attack - Dimensional stability - Good working temperature range - Non metallic - Good machinability.

Applications: General Engineering: Bearings - Bushes - Cams - Gears - Guide Shoes - Nuts Bolts and Washers - Packing rings - Pump pistons - rollers and chains - Rotors - Spacers - Thrust washers - mounting boards for electric, electronic control equipment.
Aerospace: Connector blocks - Engine blade holders - fuel pipe clamps - fuel pump gears - Galley insulation - switch cases.
Automotive: wear plates - handbrake bushes - rollers and gears for petrol pumps.
Building: ceiling hangers - gaskets and washers.
Chemicals & Gas: anti spark tank covers - Bench tops and masking plates - piston rings - bursting discs - chains & jockey pulleys - chemical pumps - dipping trays - gas compressor valves - meter gears - pump sleeves.
Electrical & Electronics: Brush supports - coil bases and formers - insulators and insulating sleeves - terminal boards - instrument handles.
Packaging: Conveyer parts - guide plates - paper guages.
