TFP's nonwovens find application in a range of energy
applications, ranging from current to next generation
We offer a dedicated range of materials specifically designed
for power generation and storage applications. These range from C
glass mats for use in lead acid batteries to carbon fibre mats for
fuel cell electrodes. As with all our materials, we specialise in
tailoring the composition and properties of our nonwovens to meet
the specific requirements of the application.
Our capability doesn't just stop at manufacturing electrodes or
separators. TFP also offer Optiveil™,
the ideal candidate for aiding production of a high quality surface
finish in composite fabrications.
Typical applications for
TFP materials include:
- Battery separators - TFP produce a variety of
nonwoven glass products, designed to meet the requirements of lead
acid battery or lithium battery systems. These materials are
suitable for use as separators, slip sheets, pasting papers and
glass retainer mats. Like all TFP nonwovens, their design &
properties can be tailored to meet individual needs.
- EMI management of enclosures - Optiveil™ &
Optimat® carbon and metal
coated carbon materials provide high levels of EMI shielding. These
mats and veils can be tailored to meet the required
attenuation values at certain specified frequencies. This
technology can be used in isolation or incorporated into a
composite, offering a competitive lightweight alternative to
traditional shielding options.
- Fuel cell electrodes - The electrical
conductivity and chemical resistance of our carbon fibre materials
make them ideal for use in fuel cell assemblies. TFP nonwovens form
the base material for carbon/carbon composite electrodes or perform
- Surface finish - Optiveil™
provides a high quality, resin rich surface finish without the use
of a gel coat. The materials can deliver a weight & cost saving
by reducing both the amount of paint or resin content required and
the need to grind or polish
