Fulcrum™ Thermoplastic Composite Products are produced with a proprietary rigid engineering thermoplastic polyurethane matrix. The combination of ductile thermoplastic matrix with high strength continuous fibers results in excellent strength and stiffness combined with superior toughness
• High Strength and Stiffness
• Excellent Corrosion resistance
• Low weight
• High toughness
• No VOC emissions
• Low thermal conductivity
• Easy to cut and fabricate
The resin offers excellent resistance to a broad range of chemicals, including acids, bases and organic liquids.
Pultruded Fulcrum profiles can be manufactured in a wide variety of custom shapes. As with other pultrusion and extrusion processes creation of a new profile requires manufacturing a die. In many instances we are able to use our existing die bases and produce custom inserts for the new profile, thus reducing cost and time to sampling.
The combination of Fulcrum with over-extrusion or co-extrusion adds an extra dimension of design freedom not available with other types of composite profiles. It allows the surface properties to be decided independent of the composite structure. Co-extrusion allows the insertion different elements within the structure for example to absorb or dissipate energy.
