Strongwell and Litchtgitter sign European distribution agreement for pultruded fiberglass gratings
Lichtgitter to distribute Strongwell’s DURADEK and DURAGRID pultruded fiberglass gratings in Europe.
Strongwell (Bristol, VA, US), pultruder of fiber reinforced polymer composites, announced on Oct. 31 an agreement with Lichtgitter GmbH (Germany), which targets the industrial floor covering and related services markets across Europe, as well as the Middle and Far East. According to the agreement, Lichtgitter will distribute Strongwell’s DURADEK and DURAGRID pultruded fiberglass gratings in Germany, France, The Netherlands, Belgium, Turkey, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Poland, Austria and Switzerland.
Market trends and tighter budgets are helping to expand the use of composites to repair and replace corrosion-damaged infrastructure — aboveground and underground.
The structural properties of composite materials are derived primarily from the fiber reinforcement. Fiber types, their manufacture, their uses and the end-market applications in which they find most use are described.
Approaching rollout and first flight, the 787 relies on innovations in composite materials and processes to hit its targets
