_Composite rods • JITEC
Cousin Composites’ technology allows the production of composite rods based on glass, aramid or carbon reinforcement, and in a range of diameters from 0.5 to 11 mm.
The parallel dipping impregnation of continuous fibers with a thermosetting resin is the basis of manufacturing. This process is suitable for accelerated production. The impregnated threads are then assembled, formed and calibrated. Before rolling on the storage wheel, the composite is then finalised by thermal polymerisation.
• Applications: telecoms – reinforcement of fibre optic cables
