CMT employs a centrifugal casting process to make our round tapered composite poles. Each pole starts with a layer of polyester veil to provide a smooth exterior finish and lifetime warranty against fiber blooming.

Then a knitted fiberglass fabric is cut to size and laid over the veil. We select the layers of fiberglass and other content according to the strength and other factors required in the finished pole. We then insert the pattern into one of our spin-casting machines.

As the machine spins, we introduce our specially formulated resin. From the centrifugal force, the resin immediately moves through the fiberglass to the outside of the spinning mold. After some curing time, the finished pole is removed from the machine. It then moves through the operation to receive custom drilling, handholes, tenons, and paint, all to customers’ specifications. The final step is to wrap the poles for shipment to the customer.
