Leader in machined plastics and resin bonded fabrics Engineering plastics and composites




Tufnol serves an international market in the marine sector. High resin content components are used across a spectrum of applications from bearings for small leisure craft to ocean going cruisers and work boats.


Our high resin content components are used in the manufacture of ocean-going vessels for:

  • Stern bearings
  • Prop shafts
  • Stern tubes bearings
  • Bow thruster bearings
  • Stave bearings


Our resin based materials are unaffected by sea water and have a low swell rate which is very predictable so that they can be very precisely designed and the stress accurately calculated. The bearings are water-lubricated so there is no need for additional lubrication or 'environmentally un-friendly' oils to be used. Tufnol resin based components were used in the stave bearings of the QE2.

Tufnol resin-bonded materials are approved by:

  • Det Norske Veritas (DNV)
  • Lloyd’s Register of Shipping
  • The American Bureau of Shipping (ABS)
