Pultrusion Applications

Surfasolve offers a complete solution in eliminating all hazardous solvent needs in the Pultrusion process. We have partnered with JRI to create automatic agitating washers for cleaning guides, pipes, parts, etc. with minimal labor and much lower costs.

Surfasolve can clean any type of resin system quickly and effectively. Our super Strip formulas can also clean polymerized resin from equipment thought to be non-salvageable.

Please review the products below for a more complete idea on the benefits and cost savings offered by transitioning your facility to our solvent replacement technology.

Surfasolve Uses in Pultrusion Applications

• Superior performance in flushing resin lines and cleaning pultrusion equipment
• Non-hazardous safer cleaning when compared to Acetone and other harmful chemicals
Significant cost savings and hazardous waste elimination in manufacturing process

For pultrusion manufacturing we recommend the following products:

Surfasolve Pro Wipes are used for spot cleaning hands on the fly.

This product eliminates the need for employees to leave machinery when hand cleaning is necessary. Used in instances where gloves may be breached and resin contaminates hands. Can also be used for cleaning down equipment and tools.

Surfasolve Tool Cleaner is used to remove uncured resin from guides, resin baths, tools, machinery parts, flushing resin lines, etc.

Tool cleaner can be used multiple times. Once resin is cleaned, it will fall out of the solution to the bottom of the capture container. This flocked material can then be separated by simply decanting the liquid Tool Cleaner from the top of the capture container. The product that remains in the capture container is comprised of resin and any fillers and pigments being used. Once removed this can then be left to polymerize in a heated container and subsequently disposed of as a solid waste.

For more efficient use in cleaning guides, resin baths, pipes, tools, etc. we highly recommend our dip tank with agitation to facilitate fast efficient cleaning by adding impingement to the process. This greatly reduces labor and usually only takes 5-10 minutes for superior results. While being able to clean several parts at once.

Surfasolve Pro Strip can be used for situations where you have gelled and cured resin on tools, machinery, guides, etc. thought to be ruined. This will drastically reduce replacement part cost and downtime due to repairs.

In the standard pultrusion process the reinforcement materials like fibers or e.g. woven or braided strands are impregnated with resin, possibly followed by a separate preforming system, and pulled through a heated stationary die, where the resin undergoes polymerization. The impregnation is either done by pulling the reinforcement through a bath or by injection the resin into an injection chamber which typically is connected to the die. Many resin types may be used in pultrusion including polyester, polyurethane, vinylester and epoxy.
