  Pultrusion is a continuous moulding process fabricating products of uniform corss section such as I Beams, Channels, Flat Bars, Rods, Hollow Section, etc, utilising glass fibre, resin, filler, peroxide and a release agent.


The glass reinforcement is drawn into a resin impregnation zone where the glass substrate is thoroughly impregnated with the resin mixture. The wet fibrous material will be pulled through a preformer into a heated die.


The shape of the end product is determined by the configuration of the die and the resin is then polymerised. This continuous and uniform method ensures consistency throughout the entire product length, therefore eliminating the possibility of weak spots.
 
FRP Hand Rail,FRP Stairtread,GRP & FRP Product,Provider,Malaysia   Unidirectional glass roving fibres give longtudinal reinforcement of the profile while mats give transverse strength.
     
  Bonds with the reinforcement and provide resistance to chemicals.
     
  Where polymerisation or curing takes place and product forms into the shape of the profile.
     
  Assures continuous drawing of the profile.
     
  Cuts product to the pre-set length.

Flatness & Thickness Consistency Pultusion is pultruded from heated die, therefore flatness is consistence even cut into smaller sizes. Thickness is even and consistent. Production of FRP hand-lay products is based on the workmanship and has a high probability of uneven surfaces due to the production process. Flatness and thickness is even and consistent. Flatness and thickness is even consistent. Flatness and thickness is even and consistent.
Impact Resistance Continuous strand glass mat in FRP Products distributes the impact load to prevent surface damage even under sub-zero temperature and will not permanently deform and stay flat for the life of the product under closed mold pultrusion processing. High in mechanical strength. Chopped strand mat used in FRP hand-lay products will probably deform or crack under impact without going under the closed mold processing and pultrusion system. Low in mechanical strength. Will permanently deform under impact and take a permanent set (dishing in trench application due to overloading). High in mechanical strength. Will permanently deform under impact and take a permanent set (dishing in trench application due to overloading). High in mechanical strength. Will permanently deform under impact and take a permanent set (dishing in trench application due to overloading). Low in mechanical strength.
Corrosion Resistant Corrosion resistant under the most aggressive conditions. Corrosion resistant. Non-corrosion resistant Depends on grade. SS304 not recommended in off-shore. SS316 better corrosive resistant. Corrosion Resistant.
Safety Electrically non-conductive and non-magnetic. Low in thermal conductivity. No sharp edges after cutting. Electrically non-conductive. Low in thermal conductivity. No sharp edges after cutting.
