Pultruded Fiberglass Rods / FRP Rods

Blastdflector2

Liberty Pultrusions is a premier USA-based pultrusion company and manufacturer of fiberglass rod. Our fiberglass reinforced plastic rods (FRP rods) are engineered and manufactured for quality and endurance through the pultrusion process.

Pultruded Solid Fiberglass Rod is a composite material with unique characteristics making it useful in a wide variety of applications. Most rods are composed of polyester resin and fiberglass. These composites can be formed into practically any shape by using the pultrusion process.

FRP Pultrusion Rod can be manufactured in several standard, stocked grades or developed as a custom pultrusion.

Through the pultrusion process it is possible to vary the resin system and enhance the glass content properties in order to meet a wide range of demanding requirements for specific designs and applications. This flexibility with the resin mix makes pultrusion material easier to work with, longer lasting and a safer product for the end user than other materials. The composite matrices determine the characteristics of each grade.

Because pultrusion material is lightweight and strong, it is often much more efficient than steel, aluminum or structural timber. Pultrusion is up to 75% lighter than steel, but just as strong.

Here are some other features of Pultruded Solid Rod:

  • Corrosion resistant
  • Non-conductive (thermally & electrically)
  • Lightweight
  • High-strenth
  • Non-magnetic electromagnetic transparency
  • Dimensional stability
  • Long life cycle
  • Lower long-term cost
  • Low maintenance
