During the pultrusion process a continuous fiber reinforcement
in roving or mat/roving form is drawn through a resin
bath to coat each fiber with a specially formulated
resin mixture. The coated fibers are assembled by
a forming guide and then drawn through a heated die.
Resin is cured by heat in the die and a catalyst in
the resin. The resulting high-strength profile is
cut to length, ready for use. The process can be visualized
simply as extrusion, but with pulling of raw materials
through the die rather than pushing them.
A pultruded composite consists of reinforcing material,
a laminating resin that binds the composite together,
possibly a surfacing veil to improve the external
appearance of the composite, and chemical resistance
and/or weather resistance, if necessary. A variety
of ancillary materials may be added, such as pigment
for color, accelerators to speed the curing of the
laminating resin, internal release agents, inert fillers,
