The lightweight and resistant properties of Torayca® carbon fibers open up different fields of applications for our rods:

  • Structural repair and reinforcement of civil engineering works
  • Supportive core material for high-voltage power cables (overhead lines)
  • Anchoring and mooring devices for offshore platforms, guyed structures, etc.

Fibers for rods

Toray Carbon Fibers Europe has developed a wide range of pultrusion resins that are perfectly compatible with Torayca® carbon fibers: Epoxy, Polyester, Vinylester, Polyurethane. These resins are functionalised to meet specific requirements such as appearance, colour, electrical properties, impact resistance, fire resistance, temperature resistance and bio-compatibility.

A wide range of a pultruded rods is available

Resins for rods

Toray Carbon Fibers Europe a développé une large gamme de résines de pultrusion parfaitement compatibles avec les fibres de carbone Torayca® :. Epoxy, Polyester, Vinylester, Polyuréthane. Ces résines sont fonctionnalisées pour satisfaire différentes exigences spécifiques telles que l’aspect, la couleur, les propriétés électriques, la tenue aux chocs, la résistance au feu, la tenue en température, la bio-compatibilité.

Type of resins

Main characteristics

Standard epoxy Tg 110°C, good cost/performance ratio
High temperature epoxy Tg 250°C, great resistance to thermal oxidation
Vinylester Resistance to corrosion and alkaline environment
Polyurethane Impact resistance
FST epoxy Resistance to fire, smoke and toxicity
Phenolic resin Resistance to fire

For sealing applications, two surface treatments are available:


S rods are designed to be anchored with organic resins (epoxy, polyurethane, etc.).


RS rods are designed to be anchored directly with mortars or cement material, their surface condition offers perfect compatibility and optimum anchorage.

Diameter of rods

TORAY CFE rods are available in a variety of diameters, ranging from 0.5 mm to 30 mm. The majority of our products are available on stock.


  • length (in-line cutting), according to customer requirements,
  • ready-to-use kits,
  • larger lengths up to 10 km, packaged on a reel.
