How is Champion Fiberglass conduit manufactured?

The Champion Fiberglass conduit manufacturing process is single-circuit filament winding. This process involves strands of fiberglass tension winding over a rotating mandrel. The strands are laid in a precise pattern and impregnated with resin as they are wound onto the mandrel. Once the desired thickness is reached, the conduit is cured under high temperature thereby ensuring maximum strength. This process results in a lightweight, strong conduit product that retains its shape after impact or compression and stands up to extreme conditions better than other options.
