Fiber Reinforced Plastic (FRP) is a composite sheet material resulting from the combination of glass fiber surrounded by a polyester-based plastic resin.
Plastics are highly flexible and do not have high mechanical strength and are prone to breakage. Glass Fiber is an excellent reinforcing material, providing the tensile strength that plastics lack.
Together, these two materials work together and provide characteristics superior to either of the materials utilized alone. FRP resists cracking, breaking or splitting and is more impact resistant than steel or aluminum. It is lightweight, corrosion resistant, and features high thermal and chemical resistance.
