    Beyond Steel: Advantages of FRP Pultruded Profiles

    Beyond Steel: Advantages of FRP Pultruded Profiles Let’s explore the advantages of FRP. For decades, steel has reigned supreme in construction and industrial applications, valued for its strength and versatility. However, a rising star is challenging its dominance: Fibreglass reinforced polymer (FRP) pultruded profiles. These innovative materials offer a unique blend of properties, making them a compelling alternative for a diverse range of projects. Understanding FRP Pultruded Profiles: At its core, an FRP pultruded profile is a continuous length of composite material formed through a continuous pulling process. Glass fibres, typically the primary reinforcement, are saturated with resin and shaped via a heated die, resulting in a rigid profile with…

    FRP SHS Pultruded Beams

    FRP Square Pultruded Beams FRP (Fiber-Reinforced Polymer) SHS (Square Hollow Section) pultruded beams are a versatile and durable construction material that is becoming increasingly popular in a variety of applications. Pultrusion is a manufacturing process that involves pulling continuous fibers through a resin bath, creating a strong and lightweight composite material. Benefits of FRP SHS Pultruded Beams There are many benefits to using FRP SHS pultruded beams, including: High strength-to-weight ratio: The SHS beams are stronger than steel on a weight-for-weight basis, making them ideal for applications where weight is a major concern. Corrosion resistance: SHS pultruded beams are resistant to corrosion from chemicals, moisture, and UV rays, making them…

    Pultruded FRP Profiles

    Pultruded FRP Profiles Fibreglass reinforced polymer (FRP) pultruded profiles are a type of composite material that are created by pulling a continuous strand of fibre through a resin bath. The resin is then cured, and the profile is cut to the desired length. Pultruded FRP profiles can be made in a variety of shapes and sizes, including equal angle, C channel, I beam, square tube, and round tube. Pultruded FRP profiles are known for their high strength, lightweight, and corrosion resistance. They are also non-conductive and non-magnetic. As a result, they are used in a wide variety of applications, including: Construction: Pultruded profiles can be used to create structural elements,…

    FRP Platforms, Decking and Stairs

    FRP Platforms, Decking and Stairs The use of FRP products are gaining more popularity for the construction of bridge decking, platforms, and stairs. They offer a combination of longevity, corrosion resistance, flexibility in design, and easy installation. If you are looking to improve or due to replace your structures like decking, platforms, and stairs with long lasting alternatives. Then investing in FRP products is a good way to go. The decking and platforms can be designed to suit most applications where steel, concrete and timber are normally used. Finally, there is an alternative that will not warp, rust, or rot. The excellent resistance to chemicals, make FRP platforms the go…

    A to Z of Pultruded Profiles

    A to Z of Pultruded Profiles From Angles to Z-purlins FRP pultruded profiles come in a huge range of shapes and sizes. Some common shapes include: Square Tube Round Tube C Channel I Beam Equal Angle H Beam What are pultruded profiles? Pultrusion, which is a combination of two terms ‘pull’ and ‘extrusion.’ The process involves pulling the raw materials through the machine. During the process, continuous glass fibres, liquid resins, pigments, and other raw materials are normally pulled through a heated die, converting them into FRP profiles. What is the Manufacturing Process? The pultrusion process begins with the reinforcement materials, which can be glass, carbon, or aramid fibres in…

    Commercial Fishery Platforms

    Commercial Fishery Platforms Working with a large commercial fishery in Queensland. The scope was to replace all of the fishery platforms with a product that is low maintenance and cost effective. Safety was also a key factor in the scope of the product supplied. Composite Engineering designed and produced a structure that suited the needs of both the employer and the employee regarding safety. The salty marine environment can be extremely harsh and corrosive to many building materials such as timber, steel and concrete. So material selection is critical to delivering a low maintenance product. The subframe of the structures is constructed from MaxiSTRUCT FRP profiles. With MaxiGRATE FRP grating,…
