Associate Professor Xuesen Zeng is a polymer composites research in the Centre for Future Materials at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ). The process of pultrusion has been used by at USQ to create composite materials for the oil and gas and transport industries in Australia and overseas. Pultrusion involves creating continuous lengths of composite material by pulling fibre-reinforced profiles through a cross-section of die, resin, and heating and cooling zones. Working alongside Wagner’s Composite Fibre Technologies (CFT), a Toowoomba-based manufacturer that utilises the pultrusion technique, the collaborative project, funded by the Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) program, is looking into new applications for the manufacturing process. The $10 million collaboration will receive $3m from the federal government’s CRC program.
