Fiberglass is one of the oldest composite technologies widely in use today, and PCT is one of the leading designers and manufacturers of custom, fiberglass structures and components in the world. We are extraordinarily experienced with using high-quality E-glass and S-glass for some of the most demanding applications in the world, including aerospace and medical technologies. Our engineering team can design a custom solution for you from the ground up, or reverse engineer any part you need--even if you do not have the specs for it.

Fiberglass is the layman's term for what industry professionals often refer to as FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic/polymer), GRP (glass-fiber reinforced plastic/polymer), and GRE (glass-fiber reinforced epoxy). However it is asked for, fiberglass is the material in question. Not all fiberglass is the same, though. In fact, there are huge differences depending on the type of glass used, the production method, the necessary machining, and the product's intended application.

E-glass is commonly used in situations where the component needs certain electrical properties. S-glass is commonly chosen for applications where the strength of the final product is of critical importance. Keep in mind, though, that PCT can custom engineer any properties you need into your final product.

PCT gained our experience and earned our reputation supplying GE with custom composites for their power generation equipment. Our high standards, customer orientation, and strict quality control systems are how we continue to hold such an exemplary reputation for high quality output. No job is too big, too demanding, or too complicated for PCT to handle.
