The challenge met by Jonam Composites has been to enable the broader use of advanced composites, which has been inhibited for too long by high material and manufacturing costs, by developing process technology to manufacture thermoplastic composites in a single process from basic raw materials.”                                Jonathan Wilcox - Technical Director
Jonam Composite’s novel thermoplastic pultrusion processing technology:
  • enables economic manufacture of high performance continuous fibre reinforced thermoplastic composites in a single one-step process
  • uses standard polymer granules-no expensive pre-processing required
  • has been used with a wide range of thermoplastics from PE, PP- even repro and recycled grades, PAs PBT, PS to high temperature plastics such as PEEK and PES
  • can incorporate many additives (pigment, coupling agents, UV stabilisers etc) as required
  • uses continuous fibres such as aramid, carbon or glass or a combination as required direct from standard rovings.
  • can embed SMART sensors such as optic fibres and cables  within the profile online
  • produces eco-friendly composites as no solvents are involved, 100% repro’ and recycled plastic can be used and the composite itself can be recycled.
  • Protective and aesthetic polymer coatings can be incorporated into the profile design
  • has been proven in a manufacturing environment
  • can be transferred to you to enable you to manufacture using our technology and know how

Thermoplastic composites can and are used in many market sectors from sport & leisure, automotive, building, aerospace, wind-turbines, and offshore/ oil and gas.
What the technology can do for you
The fibre volume fraction is variable from 0 to ~65% by volume, enabling integral polymer coatings to be formed and placement of fibres just where required within the cross-section of the profile. This flexibility enables aesthetically pleasing, high performance finished components to be economically produced from a much wider variety of polymers and fibres than ever before giving you, the customer, the mechanical, environmental, and physical properties you want.
