Aramid Veils & Mats
A key functionality of TFP's aramid veils and
mats is their resistance to abrasion and wear. This property is
exploited in applications such as industrial roll coverings or
friction product substrates, where enhanced wear resistance is
required. TFP produce para-aramids as part of our Optiveil™ and Optimat® ranges and can
also produce materials using meta-aramid if required.
Our aramid materials demonstrate excellent resin uptake and are
compatible with most common resin systems, making them suitable for
use in all major composite fabrication techniques.
- Abrasion resistance
- High temperature resistance
- High thermal stability

- Aramid veils and mats are used to impart superior wear
resistance to the surface of high speed industrial rollers used in
printing, textiles and papermaking.
- Aramid veils and mats also make an excellent substrate for
friction products, where they can be used as a coating base for
automotive brake and transmission systems.
lightweight aramid veils can be used as adhesive carriers.
- Aramid veils can also be used as a surfacing veil. They aid
production of a high quality, resin rich surface finish in
composites, with the added benefit of improved wear
Our veils and mats are available in rolls from as narrow as 5 mm
up to 1650 mm in width. We also offer the capability to supply
materials in sheeted form or as cut shapes, please contact us to
