What Do We Mean By "Custom Pultrusions"?

A custom pultrusion is a pultruded product customized in one or more of the following ways to meet a customer's specific requirements:

  • Shape: Virtually any constant cross-section part can be pultruded.
  • Resin Matrix: Standard resin systems can be modified or special resins used to address such needs as elevated temperatures or special environments. Typical resins include polyesters, vinyl esters, epoxies, phenolics, urethanes and blend.
  • Reinforcements: Typical reinforcements are fiberglass or carbon fibers in multi-filament strands, mat, woven fabrics or stitched fabric. Other reinforcement types and forms are possible.
  • Composite Design:  The selection of the resin mix, the type and form of reinforcements, and the placement of reinforcements within the composite are all ways a composite design can be customized.

Custom pultrusions contrast with standard "off-the-shelf" pultruded products in which all of the above elements are pre-established.
