Rectangular Pultruded Solid Strip
Flat carbon surface for easy bonding ◾ Rectangular reinforcement strips ◾ Wide range of pultruded rod sizes
Solid pultruded strips are great for reinforcing and strengthening small structures due to their flat surfaces. Like all other pultruded items Rock West offers, they perform incredibly well in bending and tension (pulling) applications since all the fibers are oriented along the length of the strip.
This strip is made with the process of pultrusion. If you are not familiar with the pultrusion process, it shares similarities with the extrusion of e.g. aluminum and thermoplastic plastics. However, instead of injection molding the plastic material, the pultrusion process continuously pulls fibers from rolls, which are then wetted with a matrix material (usually a thermosetting resin like epoxy resin).
Then, they are pulled through a heated die, which determines the shape of the profile. Polymerisation of the resin takes place in the die, forming a rigid profile with a diameter corresponding to that of the die and a length that is endless, in theory.
The pultrusion process guarantees:
- Accurate design
- measurement control
- perfectly aligned fibers
- smooth surface.
