Pultrusion

Pultrusion is a continuous manufacturing process for composite profiles.

Fibers, matting, and veils are aligned longitudinally and impregnated with resin and then are pulled into a heated die where the newly-formed composite is hardened.

The hardened profile continues to be pulled so that the raw materials behind it follow the same uninterrupted process. As the pultruded product reaches a desired length, it is cut to size in line. The process is continuous, and for some products we can even spool several kilometers of contiguous product output on a single spool.

Pull-winding

Pull-winding is very similar to the pultrusion process with the exception that, pultrusion, pull-winding technology also aligns fibers helically (in a spiral) around the profile, creating a mix of unidirectional and helical fibers. Pull-winding can also incorporate veils and matting. The fibers are aligned, impregnated with resin, and pulled through a heated die where the composite is hardened.  

The hardened profile is continuously pulled from the die and is cut to the desired length.
