Solution for Galvanic Corrosion

TFP's dielectric nonwovens can be used to prevent galvanic corrosion

Galvanic corrosion occurs between metals such as aluminium and carbon fibre in a composite

It causes surface corrosion and extensive pitting and is particularly serious in instances where it occurs out of sight

TFP’s dielectric nonwovens provide a solution to this

They provide a uniform, lightweight barrier between the metal and carbon fibre to isolate them, stopping corrosion.

Welcome to TFP

At TFP we develop and manufacture high performance nonwoven materials. Offering not just a diverse product range, but the capability to tailor materials to meet specific performance requirements. Our nonwovens find application in a wide variety of fields including surface engineering of composites, fire protection,  thermal insulation, power storage and cryogenic super insulation. Our most popular Optimat®, Optiveil™ and Tecnofire® ranges deliver properties including a superior quality surface finish, while providing functionality across areas spanning EMI shielding, electrical conductivity, fire protection, static dissipation and enhanced abrasion resistance.

At TFP, a key part of our ethos is working in partnership with our customers to develop solutions for their technically demanding challenges. Our expertise is drawn from an extensive knowledge of working with a wide range of polymers, particulates and speciality fibres. This experience, combined with the ultilisation of our in-house metal coated fibres production capability, ensures that we continue our 27 year tradition of delivering customised material solutions for our customers.
