Electrical Applications

Carefully selected materials. Locally made components.

We understand that component failure and downtime are expensive, unwanted problems. That's why we select some of the world's best compression moulded fibre-reinforced plastics available for some of the most demanding applications.

  • Optimised for electrical, with required mechanical and thermal properties.
  • International standards and special grade materials.
  • Improve performance. Reduce cost.
  • High complexity and high volume manufacturing capabilities.

Custom Profiles

Ultimate construction flexiblility for complex design.

The Pultrusion process enables the production of technically demanding componentsfor a variety of applications, whilst offering the many benefits composites provide over traditional materials such as metals.

  • Flexibility of construction and mechanical properties.
  • Excellent weight advantages.
  • Flame retardant, self extinguishing.
  • Wide range of standard profile or custom designed.

Composite Fasteners

They're as tough as nails. Also available in Red.

Used in technically and environmentally demanding applications, composite fasteners can outperform metals due to their highly resistant properties. They are particularly effective against fluids and gases.

  • Excellent electrical, chemical, thermnal and mechanical properties.
  • Wide range of grades tailored to application needs.
  • One quarter of the weight of steel.
  • Threaded rods, nuts, washers and tubes.
