Plasticon Composites is known as the specialist in wet filament winding process of GRE composites (Glass reinforced epoxy). We deliver worldwide your custom composite tubes.
Since 1983 Plasticon Composites has manufactured a wide diversity of high performance composite tubings :
Any of our 10 workers has more than 20 years of experience in wet filament winding, machinning and structural bonding of composites tubes.
Our low cost manufacturing process will let you afford your custom composite parts, from single unit to medium series. Our sales and technical team remain at your service. We will advise the right combination of fiber, resin and winding pattern to design upon your specification.
Process: a bunch of continuous glass fiber rovings are impregnated with viscous epoxy resin before being wound on a mandrel.
The fiber placement (winding angle) and the thickness are numerically monitored by the winding machine. Mechanical properties of the composite tube intrinsically depend on this pattern.
Plasticon Composites realises high-performance composite parts from fiberglas, carbon fibre or natural fibre reinforced epoxy resin. Products such as medium-voltage fuses (housings), connecting parts for telecommunication networks, membrane housings for reverse osmosis, high pressure vessels, carbon struts, coupling shafts , fire-fighting columns for offshore platforms and pneumatic cylinders (housings). Plasticon Composites offers there products as tailor-made solutions as every customer has specific needs. Contact one of our sales offices and send your request.
These technical parts, from 21 mm to 350 mm diameter and a length of 3 to 8.5 m (or on demand) are produced by filament winding from glass fibre, carbon fibre or flax fibres reinforced epoxy resin.
