FRP Structural Profiles
Composite Engineering’s FRP Structural Pultruded Profiles are suitable for a wide range of applications, industries and constructions. FRP Structural profiles offer several advantages over traditional materials like steel and aluminium. The FRP structural profiles are strong, lightweight, easy to fabricate on site, low maintenance and long lasting. They are also suitable for in the most demanding environments, which would cause traditional materials to corrode.
The manufacturing process involves fibreglass and other reinforcements being drawn through high pressure resin injection tooling. The fibres are shaped through a series of pre-forming guides, while being mechanically pulled through the heated die to produce the specific structural shape.
Our standard range of FRP profiles and beams include (Available in various dimensions):
Our structural shapes combine fibreglass and specifically developed resins in a polymer matrix designed to meet the most demanding chemical, flame retardant, electrical, strength and environmental standards. Composite Engineering’s thermosetting polyester and vinyl ester resin systems supply the exceptional corrosion resistance of these shapes, while strategically placed rovings and mats increase structural integrity. In addition, all exterior surfaces of our profiles are covered by a synthetic veil for added protection against UV exposure. We also manufacture using high-end materials such as Epoxy and Polyurethane resins, as well as Carbon and Aramid Reinforcements.
We can manufacture custom profiles to suit your requirements. We use the latest Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software to calculate the loads of each part and advise specific thicknesses to allow a quality part to be produced from our engineered tooling. We have supplied custom profiles to marine, motorsport and aviation industries.
