Raw Materials

Fiberglass

Roving and fiberglass tissues are materials consisting of numerous, extremely thin filaments. It is obtained when making molten glass flow through a drilled piece with such a diameter that, when solidifying, is flexible enough to be used as a fiber.

Its properties are: good thermal insulation, inert to acids and being able to endure high temperatures. These qualities, along with its low price, have contributed to its popularity in several industrial applications.

Carbon fiber

Carbon fiber is a synthetic material consisting of thousands of carbon filaments

The mechanical properties of this material are similar to those of steel, being as light as wood or plastic. Its applications are really wide, being crucial its role in aerospace and motor industries, where materials which provide resistance and lightness are demanded.

Basalt fiber

Basalt fiber is an artificial material consisting of basalt fibers. Obtained through the process of basalt casting, it is a fireproof material, resistant to alkaline and acid materials. It is, besides, a good thermal and acoustic insulator.

Resins

Resins are synthetic liquid substances responsible for giving fibers consistency during the pultrusion process.

They have thick consistency and are water-insoluble, there are different types of resins, and each one of them provides the final products with different qualities:

  • Polyester- orthophtalic and isophthalic.
  • Acrylic.
  • Vinylester- Epoxi.
  • Bioresins.
