Wabash Used Structural Composites’ PRISMA

July 24 2017

The molded structural composite trailer, built for Wabash customer K&B Transport, was on display at the 2017 Technology & Maintenance Council annual conference in Nashville, Tenn. It is the first road-ready version of the trailer.
Wabash used Structural Composites’ PRISMA as the main material for the trailer’s entire box, which consists of the roof, walls, nose and floor. CFRP can also be selectively utilized in the trailer to further reduce weight.

Wabash utilized a combination of unidirectional and other orthotropic configurations of glass fiber. The company combines the PRISMA preform elements with several different resin combinations depending on the size and specifications of each part. Some parts feature vinyl ester resin, while others incorporate polyester or Structural Composites’ proprietary CoCure resin.
