New Duct Rodders From GMP Combine High Tensile Strength & Flexibility
Trevose PA, April 1, 2002 -- General Machine Products Co., Inc. (GMP) has introduced a line of duct rodders, a result of its recent partnering agreement with the U.K.-based CBS Products, Ltd., also a global leader in cable placement tools and technology. The new duct rodders are available in four rod diameters: 1/4 in. (6 mm), 5/16 in. (8 mm), 7/16 in. (11 mm) and 9/16 in. (14 mm). Rod lengths can be specified by the customer.
These duct rodders feature high-quality, fiberglass rods (E-Glass+ Vinylester) that are specially constructed to provide exceptionally high tensile strength while retaining flexibility. For example, the glass fiber core (80% fill rate) is reinforced with a high-strength resin, and a reinforced wrap is added before a UV-stabilized, wear-resistant protective propylene coating is applied. The rods are wound on lightweight, tubular-steel frames for easy handling.
