What is Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) ?

Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (sometimes referred to as Fiberglass Reinforced Poylmer) products are a composite of fiberglass and a plastic or polymer resin that when combined, offer a stronger, more durable, more corrosion and heat-resistant product than is found anywhere else.

Using a mold to create the finished product, fiberglass is generally thermoset with a type of plastic or epoxy resin. When cured, the end product will hold its shape because of the resin, while the fiberglass will provide strength and stiffness. Just as important, the resin has additional corrosion- and heat-resistant properties not found in any type of metal products. This technology has led to increased durability and strength in hostile and corrosive environments such as chemical processing plants, food processing, waste water treatment and sewage centers, HVAC, semiconductor plants, power generator facilities, fuel storage tanks and more.

The process came into its own in the late 1970s, surpassing steel and other metals as the preferred choice in thousands of applications. And because molds can be designed in any shape, size, FRP products can be made in virtually any shape and size as well.

 

The Advantages of Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic

Products for Water, Waste Water, & Industry
Fiberglass Reinforced Plastics (FRP) can offer many advantages over other materials.


Corrosion Resistant
Fiberglass reinforced thermo set laminates have been the clear choice for corrosive environments for the past 50 years. Given the temperature and chemical environment we can recommend the right materials for the most critical applications. Corrosion resistance is often the primary reason for choosing Corrosion Composites.

High Strength Yet Light Weight
Composites have a higher strength-to-weight ratio than steel. FRP laminate is a light weight structural material that allows the designer to create large structures without the use of ribs or supports. Fiberglass duct systems require fewer hangers and supports than equivalent metal or PVC systems.

Toughness
Laminates can be designed to withstand impact, abrasion, cold and heat. We can also build in flexibility or stiffness when required.

Non-Conductive
Unlike metal, fiberglass reinforced plastic is inherently non-conductive. Fiberglass can be made to be conductive for some applications by adding carbon materials to the laminate.

Minimal Maintenance
Our FRP tanks, ducts, hoods, stack, pipes, etc. are built to last. With 50 years of fabricating experience we have had very few requests for replacements. When repairs or modifications are required it is an easy process.

Material Choices

Resin selection is based on the requirements for each project. Knowing the temperature, chemical environment and physical requirements such as wind, snow and seismic loadings will help us choose the right resin. In addition the reinforcement materials and the laminate sequence will vary for each type of job.
