You Partner for Thermoplastic Pultrusion

In thermoplastic pultrusion, we combine glass or carbon fibres with the advantageous properties of thermoplastics in a profile. 
To meet the requirements of each individual application, we develop pultrusion processes with different fibre contents, thermoplastic materials and geometries. 
With our in-house compound production and highly qualified development experts in thermoplastic pultrusion, we offer end-to-end support throughout the entire process.

We offer:

  • Selection, development and use of the right processing method by our experts
  • In-house compounding, material selection & material development
  • Fibre suppliers are integrated into the process
  • In-house prototype development
  • In-house processing, further development & support

Benefits of Thermoplastic Pultrusion

Thermoplastic pultruded profiles offer great advantages in terms of resource-saving material use: The material can substitute metal and thermoset materials to reduce the CO2 footprint. It can be reused by melting and, if necessary, chipping and thus offers an opportunity for material recycling. With this, the material as well as the thermoplastic profile can be recycled.
  • High impact strength and significantly higher damage tolerance than thermosets 
  • High stiffness at a low weight: Up to -60 % lower weight compared to metals
  • High creep resistance compared to non-reinforced thermoplastics
  • Weldability
  • Depending on the selection of the thermoplastic pultrusion method, individual solutions tailored to your application are possible. Whether in the selection of the matrix material, the design of the profile or, in part, the positioning of the fibres - a high degree of customisation is possible.
  • Non-brittle fracture behaviour due to high elongation at break of the thermoplastics
  • Lower coefficients of thermal expansion (CTE) in a range of about 5 x 10-6 K-1
  • Constant high performance due to consistent quality and tight tolerances  

  • Thermoplastic Pultrusion Methods

    Melt Pultrusion
    With melt pultrusion, very high fibre contents are possible, these can be uni-directionally aligned, whereby more complex geometries and local fibre reinforcements are also possible. There are no limits to the choice of matrix material: As experts in plastics, we advise you on the right choice of plastic and offer individual solutions.

    PA6 Cast Pultrusion

    The PA6 cast pultrusion process allows a high fibre volume of up to 70 % and thus the currently highest fibre content for thermoplastic pultruded profiles. Due to the unique character of PA 6 cast, the matrix material can completely enclose the fibre used. 

    Hybrid Yarn Pultrusion

    Hybrid yarn pultrusion is ideally suited for the production of continuous fibre profiles with simple geometries. Compared to other pultrusion processes, hybrid yarn pultrusion is a more effective pultrusion method.

    High-Volume Short-Fibre Pultrusion

    We not only offer solutions concerning thermoplastic pultrusion. In some cases, short fibre extrusion is more ideally suited, as it offers high flexibility in the choice of materials and a high freedom of design. With the use of short fibres, a fibre content of up to 60 % is possible, whereby the direction of the fibres cannot be influenced.
