These FRP panels offer ballistic resistant security with the additional performance advantages of durability, corrosion resistance, electrical non-conductivity, low thermal conductivity and light weight.
FRP Composite Snow Poles
Glasforms' composite fiberglass snow poles improve road­ way demarcation for motorists and snow removal crews. The one piece poles are designed for either direct burial into the shoulder of the road or for attachment to Glasforms' delineator or marker posts. Snow poles are available in 3 standard cross sections and in multiple lengths to achieve the proper combi­ nation of stiffness and flexibility.

Capabilities / Services

Filament Wound Tapered Tubular Masts & Battens Perform in Demanding Marine/Sporting Applications - case study
The precision placement of prestressed fibers in continuous axial and biaxial plies optimizes the stiffness, durability, transverse and bending strengths. The inherent flexibility and memory of the composite tubes dampen the effect of overpowering windloads and reflex to maintain an efficient sail shape.
Advanced Composites Pultruded for Geodetic Beam - case study
A 25 foot long geodetic cone and cylinder pultruded from rod stock utilizing select properties of graphite, glass, and polysulfone prepreg tape has been successfully tested by NASA's Johnson Space Center.
