GRP pultruded profiles are supplied from stock and we have an extensive range of glass fibre reinforced structural profiles all extruded profiles are manufactured to the same high quality.
Captrads composite structures are made from glass reinforced isophthalic polyester resin with a polyester surface veil. This combination gives excellent corrosion resistance and weather ability at an economic cost.
Composite structures made from these profiles are substantially lower in cost than stainless steel and cost-competitive with hot-dipped galvanised mild steel.
Pultruded GRP is also available in other resin systems upon order.
The standard BS EN 13706 - Specification for GRP Pultruded Profiles, defines two performance grades. Our structural profiles (t > 5mm) can meet the higher performance E23 grade.
Our GRP extruded profiles meet the requirement of the Drinking Water Inspectorate for use in potable water. All of the GRP Pultrusion is available in a variety of resins depending upon the application:
- Polyester is suitable for most industrial applications.
- Vinylester affords improved corrosion resistance and physical properties.
- Epoxy offers superior thermal stability and corrosion resistance.
- Modar improves fire performance and smoke emissions.
- Phenolic maximises fire performance and is offered as an alternative to Modar.
