Development of an innovative manufacturing process for the in-LINE COAting of pultruded composites

COALINE will develop a in-line clean one-stage process, which is free of VOCs and small particles emissions, able to produce properly coated composite pultruded profiles by means of the development of the sensing technology, advanced mould design and microwave aided curing needed to foster an improved composite – coating adhesion with a reduced labor and process cost. COALINE profiles will be joined to other materials by means of a primer type coating, incorporated also in-line, with bonding on-demand properties.


reduce the polymerization time

A microwave heating system that will reduce the polymerization time and the energy employed to produce the composites.

improve radiation absorption

New range of modified resins and gel-coats with MW susceptors to improve radiation absorption and achieve a fast curing process.

innovative control system

An innovative control system to foster the adhesion of the coating to the composite by means of a controlled curing degree in each stage of the process.

innovative fast curing primers

The development of innovative fast curing primers to permit the employment of de-bonding on demand adhesives to foster the adhesion...
