Introducing the Creative Composites Group of companies to provide customers with a greater array of products, services, and capabilities to ensure the optimal solution for any project.
The combined manufacturing capabilities of CCG encompass the primary processes for fabricating high-performing FRP composite structures. Whether requiring tight tolerances or big parts, the Group has the right manufacturing process to meet your requirements. Anything from 30 mils to 100 feet.
Being experts in all these processes enables CCG to select the process that delivers the optimum combination of cost, performance, and quality. CCG considers parameters including quantity, size, tolerance, structural requirements to provide the best value.
Pultrusion is a continuous manufacturing process utilized to make fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) pultruded profiles with constant cross-sections whereby fiberglass reinforcements, in the form of roving and mats, are saturated with resin and channeled into a heated die. The profile exits the die in a solid state and in the form of the desired cross-section.
Vacuum infusion processing (VIP) uses atmospheric pressure to drive resin into dry fiber layers after the vacuum has pulled the bag down and compacted the fibers. This is the most economical process for large parts at low to medium quantities.
Filament winding is an automated process that applies resin-saturated, continuous strands of fiber reinforcements over a rotating cylindrical mold. This process creates parts that can handle high operating pressures.
Reinforcement fibers are placed in an open mold; the resin is poured in; and the composite cures or hardens while exposed to the air. Tooling cost for open molds is often inexpensive, making this technique well-suited for prototype and low production quantities. This process easily incorporates gel coats as the cosmetic surface.
