PULTRUSION PROCESS
PUPI
®
has more fiberglass crossarm pultrusion experience
than any manufacturer. Pultrusion is a highly automated
and controlled process for manufacturing continuous fiber
reinforced composite materials of the highest strength and
reliability. Continuous glass fibers are combined with fiber
mats, impregnated with thermosetting resin and drawn through
heated precision dies to cure the structure. For PUPI products,
an ultraviolet inhibitor is included in the resin, a resin-rich
veil mat forms the surface of the part and SunGUARD
®
UV
resistant coating is thermally bonded to produce composite
products with unmatched resistance to outdoor weathering.
PUPI pultruded products are designed and manufactured under
careful process control to give uniform, predictable properties
and reliable performance.
SUNGUARD
®
UV COATING
All PUPI products feature three levels of weathering protection
including exclusive SunGUARD
®
UV coating. GEOTEK has
been manufacturing fiberglass structural products for outdoor
applications since 1972. Since 1982, all fiberglass structures
have been produced with SunGUARD
®
UV coating. Since
then, not a single product failure of any SunGUARD
®
UV
coated product has been noted anywhere in the world due to
environmental degradation, nor has any measurable coating
erosion over time been documented. That’s because patented
SunGUARD
®
UV coating is thermally bonded to the surface
of PUPI crossarms during the pultrusion process. No other
crossarm offers more protection against the elements. With
three levels of UV and weathering protection you can expect
PUPI crossarms to last 60 or more years in any climate – and
we have the longest track record to prove it.

PUPI 3 LEVELS OF UV PROTECTION:
LEVEL 1.
An outer surface of our exclusive thermally-bonded
SunGUARD UV
®
coating.
LEVEL 2.
A layer of ultraviolet-resistant polyester veil covers
the beam underneath the SunGUARD UV
®
coating.
LEVEL 3.
A broad spectrum UV inhibitor is used throughout the
entire resin system.
