Champion Strut™ Engineering
All of the strut and most of the fittings are manufactured by the pultrusion process, where continuous strands and mats of glass fiber are immersed in the resin and then pulled through a heated die. Many different shapes can be manufactured by this process. Special UV additives along with a polyester surfacing veil are added to give the components increased UV and corrosion resistance.
