These solid White Fibreglass Rods are extremely strong while maintaining a seamless silicon-like surface finish.
These white solid rods are made using the pultrusion process. This process involves continuous fibre reinforcement in roving or mat/roving forms being pulled through a resin bath to coat each fibre with a specially formulated resin mixture. The coated fibres are then drawn through a heated steel die. Cure of the thermosetting resin is initiated by heat in the die and catalyst in the resin mix. The resulting high strength fibreglass rod is then cut to length and ready to use as it leaves the pultrusion machine.
Solid Fibreglass Pultrusion Rod Properties:
- Lightweight/lower density: 25% of steel & 65% of aluminum
- High strength: high tensile & flexural strength kilo for kilo they are stronger than steel
- Superior dimensional stability over a wide range of temperatures
- Electrical insulation
- Thermal insulation
- Corrosion resistance
- Electromagnetic transparency
- Consistent cross section
All our rods come in 2 metre lengths. Custom lengths, widths and colours can be ordered but may require a minimum run.
