Layers of fibre reinforcement, such as cotton, paper, or glass fabric, are fused together to create TUFNOL® industrial laminates using premium thermosetting resins. Electrical transformers, gears, bearings, jigs, and fittings are just a few of the many possibilities for TUFNOL® industrial laminates, which come in a variety of grades. We also provide TUFNOL® components that have been produced utilising a variety of CNC facilities. Quotes may be given based on both current samples and designs.


Commonly applied to gears, bearings, jigs and fixtures.

Key Features

  • Temperature: 0°C up to +250°C.
  • Rigid with high strength & low weight.
  • Excellent electrical & thermal properties.
  • Non-corrosive.
  • Higher thermal expansion than many metals.
  • Easily machined.
  • Stronger under flexural, tensile & compressive forces than most engineering thermoplastics.
  • Resistant to heavy loads with minimal creep.
  • Weather resistant.
  • Good resistance to chemicals, oils, solvents & hydrocarbons.
  • Concentrated acids and alkalis will attack laminates.


We provide TUFNOL industrial laminates in sheet, rod, tube, or machined form to meet your needs. To identify the grade you require, kindly use the below links. There are also other grades available.
Please note that technical data for alternate sheet grades differ from technical data for tubes; please contact us if you require tube technical data.
