Diversified Structural Composites is a manufacturer of pultruded composite products for a variety of end-use applications.

The firm is a subsidiary of Toho Tenax America Inc, which produces high-quality carbon fiber for applications from a range of industries.

Pultruded composite products for end-use applications

Diversified Structural Composites develops tooling and processes to efficiently manufacture pultruded composite products.

The firm provides proprietary resin systems of polyester, vinyl ester, epoxy, urethanes, and other materials, which are selected to meet performance and cost objectives.

It produces profiles ranging from rods as small as 0.011in in diameter to panels of 250lbs.

Machining, thermoplastic coating, assembling and painting

In addition to manufacturing pultruded shapes, Diversified Structural Composites provides a number of value-added services, including secondary finishing operations such as machining, thermoplastic coating, assembly and painting.

The majority of the company’s managers are engineers with approximately 125 years of combined experience in the composite industry. It recognises the need for superior quality and to adhere to rigid standards required by its customers and their markets.

Pultrusion within the composites fabrication industry

Pultrusion has established its position as the most cost-effective manufacturing process within the composites fabrication industry.

Pultrusion is a continuous process of producing high-fiber volume, constant cross-section composite profiles. The resulting product is consistent in performance, appearance and dimension.

The final product can be on the high-performance end of the composite scale and has all the benefits associated with composite materials.

These benefits include high strength-to-weight ratio and high stiffness-to-weight ratio, as well as non-corrosive properties, dimensional stability and high thermal and electrical insulation values (non-carbon).

The product also has good dampening characteristics, the ability to pursue part consolidation practices, and damage tolerance.

Fiberglass sound wall in the highway infrastructure area

The fiberglass sound wall is one of the newest innovations in the highway infrastructure area. Composite sound wall creates unique benefits that can only be achieved through the use of composites.

These include:

  • Significant weight savings that reduce the costs of transportation to the job site, handling and installation
  • Greater length of spans with manageable weights and high-performance strengths
  • Reduction of posts and job cost
  • Resistance to salts and corrosion providing long-life, low-maintenance installations
  • Pigmentable and accepts matching paint coatings for improved appearance and weather-ability.

Soundwall Materials Fiberglass is non-corrosive, lightweight and low-cost, whilst polyester resin has minimal moisture absorption, good UV-resistance and is also low-cost.
