Examples of Composite Development Projects for Farming & Agriculture
The Original Fiberglass Electric Fencepost System
Farmer and Pultron co-founder, Dr Peter Holdsworth invented the first-ever fiberglass electric fencepost and patented clip system (pictured) in 1982. The electric fiberglass fencepost system was durable and lightweight, making hill country grazing and installing temporary fencing a quicker task for farmers. It was the first of many pultrusion products we developed for the farming and agricultural sector.
Grape Harvester Shaker System Component
We developed a GFRP rod to replace a manufacturer-supplied rod that was prone to breaking during harvest season. Read the full story here: Composite Polymer Rod a Winner at Grape Harvesting Season
Strong, light, and fitted with a rubber grip. They are also used as walking poles by trampers.
The declining range of their natural habitats has put elephants and farmers in conflict for many years, with many elephants being shot and killed. Pultron developed super-sized electric fences to keep elephants away from palm-oil plantations to help the conservation effort in Southeast Asia.
Mateenbar™ concrete reinforcement is used widely in agriculture applications including dairy farm washdowns, silos, and fertilizer plants.
