Durostone® UPGMZ -ISO

GFK-UP

Durostone® or Glastic® composite profiles offer several advantages in comparison to other materials:

  • reduced weight because of low specific gravity
  • high strength
  • good electrical and thermal insulation
  • flame retardant or self-extinguishing
  • resistant to chemicals and corrosion
  • good surface for paint or even dyed
  • great deal of construction flexibility

Characteristics

  • isophtalic acid based unsatured polyester resin (UP-ISO)
  • reinforced with a combination of glassfiber mat and rovings
  • good mechanical properties in lengthwise and crosswise direction
  • Chemical resistance

Application Examples

Cable ducts

When tracks are laid down on railway lines, particular requirements are made of the technology. Engineers frequently have to deal with topographically difficult terrain where there is no way round. Laying cables should not be a problem even under such circumstances. Properly laid cables are vital for the smooth transmission of energy and data. Robust ducts made of our Durostone® profiles protect the cables.

External claddings made of Durostone® profiles

With their low weight, high strength and flame retardant properties, Durostone® glass fibre reinforced profiles are used for external claddings in rail vehicles around the world. With their properties, they contribute to the efficiency and passenger safety of your rail vehicles.

Pultruded profiles for rotor blade spar caps made of GFRP and CFRP

Pultruded profiles for rotor blade spar caps made of our carbon fibre-reinforced or glass fibre-reinforced Durostone® increase strength of rotor blades and thus contribute to longevity and reliability.

Interior cladding made of Durostone® profiles

Thanks to their low weight, high strength and flame retardancy, our electrically non-conductive Durostone® glass fibre reinforced profiles are used as interior cladding in rail vehicles worldwide. With their properties, they contribute to the efficiency and passenger safety of your rail vehicles.

Cable ducts made of Durostone® profiles

When constructing cable trays at railway lines, special requirements are placed on the technology. Engineers frequently have to deal with topographically difficult terrain where there is no way round. Even in such circumstances, cable routing should not present a problem. Properly laid cables are essential for the smooth transmission of energy and data. Robust ducts made of our Durostone® profiles protect the cables.

Lamella walls in flue gas washer

Lamella walls made of our chemicals-resilient Durostone®-profiles (GFRP) resist contact with the aggressive flue gas in the flue gas washer in the long term and thus contribute to operational safety and reliability of the process.

Frames of Durostone® profiles (GFRP)

Parts made of Durostone® profiles, such as frames for the inverter, combine very good electrical insulation properties with high mechanical resilience and thus contribute to the reliability of high-voltage direct current transmission systems.

Rear panels for traffic lights

Traffic light rear panels made of our Durostone® profiles are very light and at the same time electrically insulating. Painted in black matt, they offer a visually attractive appearance.

Window frames and door sills

Thanks to their high mechanical stability and UV resistance, window frames and door sills made of Durostone® profiles have a long life and require little maintenance. The low thermal conductivity helps to prevent cold bridges, while a decorative film covering lends them an attractive visual appearance.

Holders and spacers of Durostone® profiles

Parts made of Durostone® profiles, such as holders (figure) and spacers (Dogbones) for windings resist high mechanical, thermal and dielectric stresses and thus contribute to the construction of reliable and long-lived dry transformers.
