Rod and flat profiles – fiberglass

Top Glass manufactures ROD and FLAT TRIGLASS® made in composite material (GRP – FRP -CRP). They can be reinforced with fibreglass and/or carbon and they represent one of the pultruded profiles made by Top Glass.
The difference between ROD and FLAT profiles is primarily due to the different type of reinforcement used in their production.
• Rods are made with ONLY LONGITUDINAL FIBRES giving them longitudinal resistance to bending and compression.
• Flat profiles instead, are produced with CONTINUOUS FILAMENT MATERIAL. In this way they obtain mechanical features that are higher performing in a transverse direction.

They are partially available from stock  in length 4.000 mm and in white colour.
Our pultruded profiles are targeted at sectors such as internal décor and are especially suitable for reinforcing marble surfaces.
Furthermore they can be also used in construction as fastening and connecting plates and in industry as components for machinery. In the marine setting they can be used as sail battens, and in the electrical technical field as spacers.
The specific composition developed by Top Glass for these profiles has made them particularly appreciated in the glass industry.
