GRP AKA Fibreglass


Glass Reinforced Plastic is what some people call fibreglass. It can be moulded into any product you can imagine. It has so many uses around the industry and the home, on the street.

Glass reinforced plastic (GRP) opens so many doors to the industry around us. GRP consists of strands of glass that are in resin so that makes it able to withstand compressive and tensile loads.

GRP is a very modern material that allows itself to be moulded into any shape that it needs to be. It can moulded into any shape, size or colour. That is the great thing about it. The industry that work with this material find it very versatile. It light weight and very low maintenance. Whilst its being produced it can be made into a fire retardant product and also a chemical resistant product too.

GRP has great potential for designers and architects. They can push there design ability’s to the limit. More and more people are choosing GRP as there choice of material to use. Every where you look you will find an examples all over the place.

There are lots of examples of what is made out of Glass Reinforced Plastic.

Roofing, theme park rides, water slides, boat hulls, life raft, play equipment GRP Enclosures and the list goes on and on.

It would take an age to write the list of even half of what GRP is used for. Have a good look around you now and see what you can see is GRP, next time you walk down the road have look around you and see what you can see is GRP. You will be surprised at how much you can point out.

It is quickly overtaking steel and other metals. Metal is no comparison. GRP is a lot lighter, it can be moulded into any shape and it can also be any colour that it is needed. It so much more versatile then metal.
