INDUSTRY-LEADING TESTING AND
APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT CAPABILITIES
GEOTEK brings nearly 40 years of pultrusion and materials science experience to the PUPI crossarm
and brace manufacturing processes. Engineered specifically for the critical demands of the electrical
utility industry, PUPI crossarms exhibit performance and reliability that is unmatched. PUPI’s reputation
for durability is built upon years of intensive testing and application engineering.
PUPI SunGUARD UV
®
coating has been independently tested to the 2,500
hours of accelerated UV exposure specified by the U.S. Rural Utilities Service.
After 2,500 hours, PUPI crossarms showed no degradation in flexural strength,
modulus or deflection. There was no visible change to the color or gloss of the
UV coating.
When tested to 10,000 hours of accelerated UV exposure, PUPI crossarms
showed some lightening of the SunGUARD UV
®
coating color but no other
changes in the coating.
UV RESISTANCE TESTING:
Repeated mechanical testing at independent test facilities confirms that PUPI
crossarms meet or exceed stated load ratings.
GEOTEK’s on-site mechanical testing facilities can be used to test custom
applications of PUPI crossarms and braces.
STRENGTH & DEFLECTION TESTING:
WHY PUPI

BUILT TOUGH
ELECTRICAL TESTING:
Leading electrical laboratories have confirmed that PUPI crossarms have
superior insulating and BIL properties.

CUSTOM APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT:
GEOTEK has worked with customers around the world to develop PUPI
fiberglass solutions to their challenges.
GEOTEK engineers have extensive experience working with fiberglass
crossarms specifically for use in the electrical utility industry.
