What is the "electrical" related reason for using tufnol rather than steel or aluminium for mag pinion?

I asked this in another thread and the answer was: in terms of conductivity, there is no reason. I asked because I had always used a phenolic pinion, but my Grey Flash came with a steel pinion. There were no contrary replies. Maybe there will be here.

It's likely that no further discussion is required, in which case we recommend starting a new thread. If however you feel your response is required you can still do so.
