The Pultrusion Process

Pultrusion is a technique for the continuous manufacture of fiber reinforced composite profiles. By incorporating glass, carbon, aramid and other high performance fibers into a range of high performance resins, physical properties can be achieved to meet the needs of engineers in a wide variety of applications. Reinforcement fibers are drawn into a resin impregnation zone and then pulled through a preformer into a heated die. Here the shape of the end product is determined by the configuration of the die and the resin is polymerized.


Advantages of the pultrusion process

1.High stiffness to weight ratio- Also known as specific stiffness, it allows materials of different mass to be compared quickly in rigidity-sensitive applications where weight is still a factor. Carbon fiber does extremely well in this area, being about 3 times stiffer than steel and aluminium for a given weight.
With all the fibers running unidirectionally, pultruded tubes take optimal advantage of this characteristic.

2.High strength to weight ratio- Also known as specific strength, this is similar to the stiffness to weight ratio.   This ratio allows you to compare materials of different mass   for applications where resistance against breaking has priority.

3.The ability to easily make tubes with specific wall-thicknesses- The inside diameter of   a pultruded tube is determined by a mandrel, which is easy to exchange for a different sized one, making it easy to produce tubes with varying wall thickness.

4. Easy to machine- Because of the low density of composites, they lend themselves to be machined well.

In short, the pultrusion process gives you a different way to solve your design challenges — one that can reduce costs and improve performance in the long run. To maximize these benefits, however, it’s best to design with the properties of FRP in mind from the start. Our engineers and fabricators can help, so contact us with your specific demand.

The Roll wrapping process

Roll-wrapping involves the applying of resin pre-impregnated composite fiber cloth (Pre-Preg) around a mandrel. The outer diameter of the mandrel thus determines the inner diameter of the final tube. The mandrel and cloth are then spiral wrapped with a consolidation tape under tension to hold the laminate in place during the curing phase. After curing, the mandrel is extracted to leave the tube ready for machining or finishing as necessary.

Advantages of the roll-wrapping process

1. Precise fiber volume fraction- The fiber comes pre-impregnated in frozen state to the tube manufacturer. Since the carbon and resin are pre-mixed in a temperature and particle controlled environment, the fiber volume fraction can be tightly controlled. This results in more consistent mechanical properties in the end product.

2. Small custom batches- The production process is relatively inexpensive and the Pre-Preg fabric can be used for many end products.

3.High degree of customization possible- The ease of adding or subtracting localized reinforcements make it possible to create custom end products to fit nearly any composite tube need.

4.Tapered tubes are possible- Since wrapping is not a continuous process but uses a mandrel of defined dimensions, a tapered profile can be build.
