Intent on technological achievement from the start, TBA Electro Conductive Products was formed as a manufacturing company in 1985, although it can trace its history back to Turner & Newall in the 1920s and the original business, Turner Brothers Asbestos, was founded in 1879.
At the start of this century, TBA Industrial Products became a limited company, incorporating the Electro Conductive business, until TBA Electro Conductive Products was separated as a limited company in its own right (2003). Building on its strengths, the cutting edge business that you see today is now known as TBA Protective Solutions.
That’s the evolution of the business identity, but it is the company history of pioneering accomplishments and innovative projects that stands out like a beacon within the sector.
In the 1980s the very first mobile phones – the Orbitels and Ericssons of the communications world– were protectively coated with material from TBA. Many more followed.
There has been considerable involvement with aerospace. For example, the supply of crucial EMI shielding parts for BAe’s Eurofighter. Shielding gaskets in aircraft have also been used around the boxes that house video monitors in the backs of seating.
Satellite dishes have TBA coatings; body pads for the medical industry come from the company; and state-of-the-art Voyager Blue identity protection that you can carry in your wallet or purse was introduced as one of the latest strides forward.
Most recently TBA launched one of the very first commercially viable products to harness the unique properties of graphene in a sprayable, transparent conductive coating which safeguards electronic equipment used in explosive ATEX environments.
That’s a mere indication of the purpose and strengths of this R&D-centred company, TBA Protective Solutions: serving the needs of wide-ranging industries across the world.
