What is the Pultrusion Process?
Pultrusion is a continuous molding process, whereby reinforced
fibreglass matt roving’s, fillers and resins are saturated with liquid
resin and then carefully pulled through a curing and heated die to
form a completed composite structural shape where cross sections
Glass placement, resin formulation, catalyst level, die temperature and pull speed are critical process variables. They must be set up correctly and monitored during the manufacturing process to ensure proper appearance and the specified chemical and physical properties.
The resin provides environmental resistance and the glass provides
strength, in addition to safety from fire.
