Product Information

Suitability

Not Suitable

These solid White Fibreglass Rods are extremely strong while maintaining a seamless silicon-like surface finish.

These white solid rods are made using the pultrusion process. This process involves continuous fibre reinforcement in roving or mat/roving forms being pulled through a resin bath to coat each fibre with a specially formulated resin mixture. The coated fibres are then drawn through a heated steel die. Cure of the thermosetting resin is initiated by heat in the die and catalyst in the resin mix. The resulting high strength fibreglass rod is then cut to length and ready to use as it leaves the pultrusion machine.

Solid Fibreglass Pultrusion Rod Properties:

  • Lightweight/lower density: 25% of steel & 65% of aluminum
  • High strength: high tensile & flexural strength kilo for kilo they are stronger than steel
  • Superior dimensional stability over a wide range of temperatures
  • Electrical insulation
  • Thermal insulation
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Electromagnetic transparency
  • Consistent cross section

All our rods come in 2 metre lengths. Custom lengths, widths and colours can be ordered but may require a minimum run.

Applications

These rods can be used in a number of applications in the agriculture, viticulture and horticulture sectors including:

  • Electric fence posts
  • Garden stakes
  • Vine stakes
  • Tree supports
  • Mechanical harvesting rods - used on grape pickers, berry pickers etc
  • Tunnel house supports/cloches.
  • Net supports

The solid fibreglass rods are lightweight, UV stabilised, extremely strong and quick and easy to install.

They are lightweight, flexible and very strong, non- conductive and non-corrosive and are available in a wide range of colours.

ive purchased the 3 and 4 mm solid fibreglass rods for use in my model aircraft building. they are good value for money, light and strong with a little flex which is what i needed. the finish is nice and generally smooth but as a safety measure dont run them through your hands in case if tiny splinters, just to be safe. cut with junior hack saw, turning rod as you go to prevent splitting and sand ends clean after cutting. a good value good quality product.
