What are the advantages of 1P/13 Tufnol Plastic Sheet?

A very strong plastic rigid Plastic Tufnol Sheet
Reasonable low voltage insulation

What are the disadvantages of 1P/13 Plastic Rod?

Can chip if high impact
Not for high voltage applications
Low flame retardancy

What is 1P/13 used for?

This grade is described as the “general purpose” grade, it often gets used for router jigs, fixtures, guides and some basic tooling

What should 1P/13 Tufnol Plastic  Sheet not be used for?

Not really for high wear applications or for high voltage electricity applications
How well does 1P/13 Tufnol Plastic Sheet machine?

1P/13 grade will machine up quite well with carbide cutter but will generate a fine yellow dust

Can 1P/13 Tufnol Plastic Sheet be Glued and bonded?

This grade is easily bonded with many commercially available adhesives such as araldite, epoxies and contact adhesives

Is 1P/13 Tufnol Plastic Sheet chemical resistant?

This grade also doesn’t have a very high resistance to chemicals or acids

What is the size range and availability of 1P/13 Tufnol Plastic Sheet

We stock thicknesses from 1mm up to 25mm

Is 1P/13 Tufnol Plastic Sheet suitable for Food applications?

IP/13 is not suitable for constant contact with food

Is 1P/13 Tufnol Plastic Sheet good for wear resistance?

This grade is more for general purpose use, it will stand being used as a router jig and will give a reasonable life but the Whale grade is certainly more designed for wear resistance

Is there a summary of 1P/13 Tufnol Plastic Sheet?

1P13 Grade Tufnol Plastic Sheet is a low cost commercial paper based laminate, produced to meet the need for an economical material where electrical requirements are moderate. As a good basic, low voltage insulation material, this grade has a higher mechanical strength than the other grades in our phenolic paper range and greater impact strength. It can be machined readily and components can be hot punched in thicknesses up to 3.2mm. This material is great for many electrical components where low voltage insulation is required. Its low cost and all round properties make it a good choice for many less demanding mechanical duties, such as spacers, base plates, side plates, and simple jigs and fixtures.
