TFP will be exhibiting at SAMPE Seattle this year when the postponed show goes ahead in November. Materials on display at booth E5 include our innovative Tecnofire fire protection range, nano-coated materials and Optiveil® lightweight veils which aid surface finish and composite fabrication.

Tecnofire® is a range of versatile lightweight intumescent fire protection materials. The materials work by expanding from 4 to 35 times their original thickness when exposed to heat, protecting the underlying structure from heat energy. The popular range is used extensively in a broad range of applications and has been specified for use in bridges, fire doors, buses, trains, trams and structural panels (to name but a few) following successful fire testing. TFP offer specially developed resin infusible grades for incorporation at the surface of a composite to provide effective fire protection where it is required, without compromising structural integrity

Finally, TFP will be exhibiting our Optiveil® nonwovens which provide a surface finish solution for a variety of composite markets; with proven results in applications from the aerospace, automotive, sporting goods, marine, energy and industrial sectors. Optiveil® can be used as a surfacing veil and fabrication aid – providing a means of improving resin flow in the structure. This dual function highlights the multi-functionality of TFP’s materials; Optiveil® can offer additional benefits such as fracture toughness, EMI shielding, electrical conductivity, galvanic corrosion prevention, and corrosion & abrasion resistance.
