Reactive Pultrusion Approaches for a cost-efficient FRP-profile production

- New developments in reactive resins as composite matrix material
- Target applications for reactive pultrusin processes
- Equipment for the pultrusion of profiles in high volumes
- Institutional and fundamental research

About this symposium:
As continuous process, the pultrusion offers great potential for a cost-efficient production of highly loadable profiles made of continuous fibre reinforced plastics. For a large-scale production, highly reactive resin materials are increasingly focused in current developments (e. g. polyurethanes, epoxy resins or insitu polymerizing thermoplastics). Due to the low viscosity of the constituent materials, they offer excellent impregnation properties. Thus, high performance profiles with high fibre volume contents and excellent mechanical properties can be realised. At the same time, the profile production can be realised very cost-efficient at high production speed due to the high reactivity of the material systems. However, the use of highly reactive systems results in new challenges for the processing technology such as the correct construction and design of the injection box instead of a conventional impregnation bath as well as of the die technology. Furthermore, the importance of a precise process management, process control and quality assurance increases in order to guarantee a robust and cost-efficient production.
Against this background, various applications and potentials for the pultrusion with reactive materials in high volumes will be demonstrated and discussed in this symposium. Researchers, material suppliers, processors and customers have the opportunity to inform themselves about new material developments, suitable machine equipment and die technologies as well as current research activities and discuss the presented solutions with technical experts.
The conference language is English.

Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
