At TFP we believe in working in partnership with our customers
and suppliers offer a range of capabilities which enable us to
deliver high quality, custom-made materials.
These capabilities include a pilot line
facility which is dedicated to new product development.
This smaller scale version of our main manufacturing process
provides a cost effective opportunity to trial new materials.
We also offer extensive experience working with a
broad range of fibre types, including quartz, silver coated nylon,
silicon carbide, viscose, pure metal & metal alloys and welcome
custom enquiries that involve these or other fibre options.
Creation of a customised solution doesn't stop with fibre type
though; our expertise and capability enable us to offer a range of
ways to meet specific properties and attributes. These include the
use of precise fibre blends, binder selection to
ensure application compatibility and the addition of
particulates to the veil or mat. Our metal
coated carbon veils and mats also offer a unique
opportunity to deliver a custom product, the fibres are produced
'in-house' which means that metal type and metal coating weight can
be specifically optimised to produce tailor-made solutions.
Our ability to develop custom materials is not limited to our
primary manufacturing process and capability, we also offer
customisation via secondary processing. This includes development
of hybrid products, through
consolidation of multi-layer structures using our new in-house
facility. In addition to this in-house technology, we also work in
partnership with a network of converting specialists to offer
customers a variety of secondary processing options. Typical
options include compression and resin impregnation of the nonwoven
Our open and enabling ethos of working in partnership with
customers and suppliers has proven to be a solid foundation for the
successful development of custom materials to meet technically
demanding challenges in a cost effective way. We would
welcome the opportunity to discuss full details of our capability
with you, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
