Whether providing a performance enhancement or increasing
longevity, TFP nonwovens are ideal for use in a broad range of
- Performance enhancement - TFP nonwovens
deliver enhanced functionality, including fire protection and
thermal/ cryogenic insulation.
- Increased longevity - Our aramid and glass
nonwovens can be used to increase wear resistance in composite roll
covers and chemically resistant C glass mats & veils offer
enhanced corrosion resistance in pipework or vessels.
TFP offer the capability to tailor any of these materials to
suit the specific application requirements. Both in terms of
performance, or the form in which the material is supplied, options
include the production of complex shapes or hybrid
Typical uses in industrial
- Wear resistance & static dissipation of roll
covers - Glass and aramid nonwovens from TFP can be used
in composite roll covers to impart superior wear resistance. Common
to high speed industrial rolls used in printing, textiles and
papermaking, TFP technology delivers quality & longevity. Using
a precise blend of dielectric and conductive fibres, TFP nonwovens
can also offer protection from the threat of surface static
- Cryogenic insulation - Supacool, by TFP,
offers high thermal stability and can be co-wound with a metal foil
to provide effective superinsulation for cryogenic vessels,
including those for liquid oxygen storage.
- High temperature insulation - TFP offer thermal insulation papers
produced from a broad range of fibres including glass,
mineral, AES (alkaline earth silicate),
RCF(refractory ceramic fibre) and alumina. These
nonwovens deliver effective insulation at temperatures
ranging from 500°C up to 1600°C, combined with excellent
cold-handling material strength and flexibility.
- Corrosion resistance of pipes and vessels - As
part of our Optiveil™ and Optimat® ranges, we offer
chemically resistant C glass veils and mats. These provide an
effective surfacing layer to improve the corrosion resistance of
vessels and pipework for the chemicals industry.
- Fire protection - Tecnofire®, by TFP,
provides highly effective passive fire protection for composite
structures and in gap filling applications. Activated by heat to
produce a stable char, Tecnofire acts as an insulating layer,
offering enhanced fire protection to underlying materials.
- Surface finish - Optiveil™
provides a high quality, resin rich surface finish without the use
need for a gel coat. Optiveil™ thus delivers a weight & cost
saving by reducing both the amount of paint or resin content
required and the need to grind or polish.
