What Are Custom Pultrusions?
A custom pultrusion is a unique product manufactured to distinct customer specifications. With a choice of resin systems and reinforcing materials, they can be engineered to practically any constant cross-section. This composite design can be customized with excellent degrees of customer control.
Composite pultrusions engineered using resins as varied as polyesters, vinyl esters, epoxies, phenolics, urethanes, and blends, alongside reinforcements like fiberglass and carbon fiber, have been adopted at scale in a broad range of markets.
Which Markets Utilize Custom Pultrusions?
- Architectural: Attractive and durable, Strongwell custom pultrusions outperform traditional materials in terms of long-lasting style and substance in architectural applications.
- Construction: Custom pultrusions can enhance the inherent high-strength and non-corrosive properties of composites to meet and exceed customer specifications in the construction industry.
- Cellular: Composites are virtually transparent to cellular emissions and electromagnetic frequencies, which makes custom pultrusions ideal for telecommunications and rooftop cellular screening.
- Coastal / Marine: Impervious to rot with superb resistance to saltwater corrosion, polymer composites are rapidly replacing steel and timber in many marine and coastal applications.
- Electric Utility: Custom pultrusions serve the electric utility market on several fronts; providing savings on upfront investment and ongoing operating costs alongside a raft of safety benefits.
