Protecting the Environment with SGS Frangible Fiber-Reinforced
Polymer (FRP) pultruded composites
With the impending fears of climate change, many
companies are looking for ways to do their part in helping to build a more
sustainable and cleaner planet. SGS Frangible stands at the top position across
industries and sectors to protect the environment by using pultruded products
that includes fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites.
This is a miniature view of how we are helping to keep
the environment clean and green by doing our bit. Zooming to the details -
1. Practicing an Environmental-Friendly manufacturing
- Primarily, the process of creating pultruded products
at SGS Frangible is far safer than traditional methods keeping in mind the
environment. For doing so, in manufacturing of the pultruded products, bundles
of fiber are pulled through a liquid resin bath. Once the fiber rovings are
impregnated with more resin, the product is then cast into the desired shape
and further cured. Our FRP pultruded products manufacturing process also
results in - less wasted materials, less use of energy and thereby less
pollution. It can be clearly seen that our manufacturing process right from the
beginning to end, generates very less waste. From our end, there are no piles
of useless shavings for nature and environment to discard in a landfill.
- The massive loss of entire ecosystems that is used to
produce wood products is another major issue responsible for climate change.
This is where our FRP pultruded products can help cut down
on deforestation. Although some may provide opinion that continuing
manufacturing products using wood is not sustainable at a commercial level but
we argue from some different perspective. The devastation that has been done to
wildlife and natural habitats cannot be repaired by simply planting new trees
as it will take generations for saplings to grow and in the modern age, the
effects of deforestation have caused many endangered species extinct. Our FRP
pultruded products not only reduce deforestation but they also have a longer lifespan
which eradicates regular wear, tear and removal thereby do not cause any
disturbance to the environment.
- Our manufacturing process relies on few
significant factors that ensure its success. One of the most important
factors is that our pultruded profiles are designed from composites which are
naturally corrosion resistant which clearly indicates that they can withstand
extreme weather conditions and wide temperature ranges which ultimately
increases the lifespan of our products in comparison to products of other
2. Following a Clean Pultrusion Process
- Talking about frangible towers and composite structures
and leaving clean pultrusion behind is impossible thus our clean pultrusion
process stands strongly. For creating FRP composites in order to reduce
environmental burden, we use pre-impregnated tapes.
- Our FRP pultrusion manufacturing makes use of easily
recycle products in the form of thermoplastics whereas in the crafting and
manufacturing of other products like aluminum and steel, the materials which
are used once cannot be reformed or recycled which further leads to majority of
manufacturing waste. Keeping in mind the same, our FRP pultruded products
ensures to have only a great impact on the environment by reducing the amount
of waste pre; during and post production.
- Since, our pultruded products possess strong properties
in terms of heat resistance, corrosion impact and moisture etc., they have
typical life span of up to 15 years with almost little or no maintenance which
is way beyond than any traditional material.
- SGS Frangible pultruded products are unique and strong
because of its clean pultrusion process that’s why we are confident for our
product range. Moreover, with longer lifespans, our FRP composites won’t be
seen filling up landfills or leaching toxic chemicals into the ground.
3. Ethics of Recycling
- When it comes to environment conservation, recycling
stands at the top just so we with our FRP pultruded products try best to
preserve earth’s ecosystem at every step. Our little production waste is made
ready for reuse by shredding the waste fiber in small equal strands. The
strands are transferred to small statue casting manufactures who re-use these
strands in their castings to increase the strength of their products.
