In this market, different types of FRP poles such as filament winding, pultrusion
, and centrifugal casting are used as process.
The company added that this acquisition of DSC will make Exel Composites the only pultrusion
company with significant presence on all three major continents.
A first experimental setup "Pultrusion
" consists of pultruding a glass fiber bundle through a PA 12 melt chamber without further manipulations.
Adapting this technique to conventional processing like pultrusion
would greatly expand applications without the need for expensive tooling.
Established in 1973 and located in Alum Bank, Pennsylvania, Creative Pultrusions
is a subsidiary of Hill & Smith Holdings PLC, an international group with leading positions in the design, manufacturing, and supply of infrastructure products and galvanizing services.
In 1985 it worked with DuPont, Australia to develop a reinforcement system that addressed the shortfalls of steel and in 1990 it worked in conjunction with BHP to develop a world-first technology combining pultrusion
Part of the Abdullatif M Al Arfaj and Brothers Holding Company, SPI manufactures FRP products under a technical license of Pacific Composites, a pioneer in pultrusion
Any available production process could then be undertaken for the completion of the production, he told INIC.For example, the researchers of the company manufactured one ton of the mentioned nanotubes through pultrusion
UNTIL NOW, PULTRUSION
HAS BEEN USED TO MAKE STRAIGHT COMPOSITE PROFILES THAT 60 INTO EVERYTHING FROM LADDERS AND SKI POLES TO INDUSTRIAL DECKING AND MILITARY ANTENNAS.
New Zealand-based Pultron Composites has started building the first pultrusion
factory in Dubai at the Jebel Ali Free Zone as part of its expansion plans in the region.
* The ability to be produced using common thermoset manufacturing processes such as resin transfer molding, vacuum-assisted resin infusion, filament-winding, pultrusion
, prepreg manufacture, mold construction, casting and injection molding.
For thermosets, three processes are described: reaction injection molding, pultrusion
, and compression molding.
