The attractive long-term prospects for pultruded composites in infrastructure and further key application markets were highlighted at the recent World Pultrusion Conference, organised by the European Pultrusion Technology Association (EPTA).
Preliminary tests have demonstrated that the tensile strength of composite rebar can be increased by 32%, and bending strength by 29%, by introducing only 0.05 wt% of OCSiAl’s TUBALL nanotubes into the resin.
