Custom engineered composites for your needs

We at Exel Composites specialize in custom engineered composites tailored to your mechanical specifications and aesthetic needs. From carbon fiber composites and glass fiber composites to hybrids, we are the right partner to help you take your products to the next level. Our experienced R&D team has decades of experience working with CFRP and GFRP materials. So whether your looking for structural composites or composites sheets for building & infrastructure or composite panels for transportation, we will help you find the optimal composite solution based on your needs.

We are experts in continuous manufacturing, including pultrusion and pull-winding which are well suited for high quality volume manufacturing of composite profiles and tubes.

Composites offer various benefits

Composite materials offer a wide range of benefits across various industries and applications due to their unique combination of properties. Some of the biggest benefits of composite materials include: exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, durability, design flexibility, corrosion resistance, fatigue resistance, tailored mechanical properties, thermal and electrical insulation and reduced maintenance costs.

FRP Composites solutions for different industries

Exel Composites serves several industries and segments with various advanced composites solutions. Our custom pultrusion and pull-winding solutions include:

  • FRP (fiber reinforced plastic) pultruded profiles and tubes

  • GRP (glass reinforced plastic) pultruded profiles and tubes

  • hybrid composite profiles and tubes

  • thermoplastic composites


Exploring carbon fiber composites and GFRP materials: Exel Composites addresses key questions


Q: What kind of materials, fibers and resins do you use?

A: Composites, also known as reinforced plastics, can be made from different fiber and resin combinations. We manufacture both glass fiber composites and carbon fiber composites as well as hybrids where different fibers can be combined in the same profile to achieve different mechanical properties. It is also possible to use natural fibers such as hemp and flax. The interest for natural fiber composites is increasing as OEMs look for ways to reduce their carbon footprint.

Q: What kind of manufacturing processes does Exel Composites use?

A: Exel Composites specializes in continuous manufacturing technologies including pultrusion, pull-winding and continuous lamination. Pull-wound and pultruded composites come with many benefits. As the processes are continuous they provide many benefits including repeatable quality and volume output.

Q: What is pultrusion?

A: The pultrusion process is a continuous manufacturing technology for composites resulting in a steady output of a composite profile which is cut to length at the end of the process. It is called pultrusion because the profile being produced is actually pulled through the process.

Q: What is pull-winding?

A: Pull-winding combines the two techniques of pultrusion and continuous filament winding resulting in a profile with excellent hoop strength, longitudinal strength and modulus, with smooth surface finish. Pull-winding is very similar to pultrusion, with the main difference of adding cross-wound reinforcements. This allows layup configurations with both unidirectional and cross-wound (off-axis) fiber alignments. 

Q: Does Exel Composites have a presence in the United Kingdom?
