Pultrusion is a continuous process for the manufacture of products having a constant cross section, such as rod stock, structural shapes, beams, channels, pipe, tubing, fishing rods, and golf club shafts. Pultrusion produces profiles with extremely high fiber loading, thus pultruded products have high structural properties. Pultrusion is a manufacturing process for producing continuous lengths of FRP structural shapes. Raw materials include a liquid resin mixture (containing resin, fillers and specialized additives) and reinforcing fibers. The process involves pulling these raw materials (rather than pushing as is the case in extrusion) through a heated steel forming die using a continuous pulling device. The reinforcement materials are in continuous forms such as rolls of fiberglass mat or doffs of fiberglass roving. As the reinforcements are saturated with the resin mixture (“wet-out”) in the resin impregnator and pulled through the die, the gelation (or hardening) of the resin is initiated by the heat from the die and a rigid, cured profile is formed that corresponds to the shape of the die. Pultruded FRP channels offer a unique combination of chemical resistance, light weight, high strength, thermal/electric non-conductivity, easy to install and maintain, rich color to choose etc. So, they can be used in the fields of chemical anti-corrosion, construction, electric insulation, power development and telecommunications etc. Any profile can be designed according to customers’ requirement.
