Pultruded Fiberglass Rods / FRP Rods

Newstime:2021-12-14   Visits:1149

The pultrusion process is a very efficient way to manufacture fiber reinforced composite products. it allows pultrusion manufacturers to produce continuous lengths of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) profiled shapes.

This pulling process permits the strategic placement of continuous strand glass fiber, fiberglass mats and C/W Barrier, allowing for optimization of structural properties. FRP Pultruded structural shapes have a superior long-term resistance to chemical corrosion and other weathering. pultruded shapes will not rust, rot, scale or mildew.

The term pultrusion is actually a combination of the words pull and extrusion. this makes sense when we realize that the pultrusion process involves a machine pulling the fiberglass through a liquid resin and then pulling that combination of glass and resin through a heated die. extrusion is the process of creating objects of a fixed cross-sectional profile through a pushing process.

Liberty Pultrusions is a premier USA-based pultrusion company and manufacturer of fiberglass rod. our fiberglass reinforced plastic rods (FRP rods) are engineered and manufactured for quality and endurance through the pultrusion process.

Through the pultrusion process it is possible to vary the resin system and enhance the glass content properties in order to meet a wide range of demanding requirements for specific designs and applications. This flexibility with the resin mix makes pultrusion material easier to work with, longer lasting and a safer product for the end user than other materials. the composite matrices determine the characteristics of each grade.

Because pultrusion material is lightweight and strong, it is often much more efficient than steel, aluminum or structural timber. pultrusion is up to 75% lighter than steel, but just as strong.

Here are some other features of pultruded solid rod.
Corrosion resistant;
Non-conductive (thermally & electrically);
Lightweight;
High-strenth;
Non-magnetic electromagnetic transparency;
Dimensional stability;
Long life cycle;
Lower long-term cost;
Low maintenance.
