Reinforced plastic

Reinforced plastic (usually referred to as glass fibre, FRP or GRP) is a composite material with a structure-strengthening reinforcement and plastic that bind the fibres together.

Benefits of reinforced lastic:

  • Very good chemical resistance of the structure

  • Good strength and stiffness properties

  • Extensive design possibilities

  • Can be used to produce different sizes of structures

  • Extensive opportunities to direct and target strength properties

The most common reinforced plastic is glass fiber reinforced thermosetting plastic. Vinyl ester resins are mainly used in the plastic matrix. In addition, several other types of resins are used, e.g. polyester and epoxy resins. As reinforcements, e.g. C, E and ECR glass, carbon fibre, as well as various reinforced textiles.

Corrosion, fire and wear resistance properties can be improved with base material choices and special additives. It is also possible to make the structure electrically conductive.

Operating temperature -50°…+200°

Inner surface/corrosion layer of 2-3mm is precisely laminated by hand.

Support layers/structural layers are made by methods that ensure a high strength content, such as coiling or injection.

Applications such as: chimneys, gas scrubbers, washers, tanks, containers, coatings, composite structures
