Fibreplas

a new concept in reinforced extruded profiles

The process provides the means of producing a continuously reinforced extruded profile with the reinforcement located where required to give the desired properties. It provides an efficient, cost effective manufacturing solution for “self-stiffened” continuous profiles, giving improved properties and greater design flexibility than existing products.

The technology offers the potential of up to 500% increase in flexural stiffness over conventional plastic extrusions and a reduction in costs when compared to metallic or pultruded products. By eliminating the need for metallic reinforcements the glass-fibre reinforced profiles are the ideal solution in environments where thermal conduction and corrosion are an issue.

The glass-fibre profile presents an absolutely perfect cohesion between the two materials and can offer:

  • BENDING STRENGTH
  • LIGHTNESS
  • MATERIALS PERFECT COHESION
  • NO THERMAL CONDUCTION
  • NO CORROSION
  • ELIMINATION OF ADDITIONAL COSTS FOR METALLIC REINFORCEMENT PROCESSING
  • ELIMINATION OF METALLIC REINFORCEMENTS PURCHASE COST
  • ELIMINATION OF WORKING TIME
  • ELIMINATION OF THERMAL EXPANSION
  • ELIMINATION OF CORROSION DUE TO METALLIC REINFORCEMENTS
  • ELIMINATION OF HEAT CONDUCTON DUE TO METALLIC REINFORCEMENTS
  • NO DIMENSIONAL SHRINKAGE
  • EXCELLENT SOUND IINSULATION
  • WELDABLE
  • ECONOMIC PROFIT
  • SUITABLE TO DIFFERENT CONSTRUCTIVE TYPOLOGIES

The innovation has met the following criteria:

  • technical excellence
