There are many benefits to using our FRP products.  Our custom FRP products will exactly meet your specifications and requirements when you allow us to be an integral partner in your design team.

The term FRP, which is common throughout the industry, refers to a plastic (polymer) that has been reinforced with glass fibers.  Additional reinforcements may be added and are typically composed of polyester fibers, carbon fibers, natural fibers or more glass fibers.  When fibers are combined with thermoplastic and thermoset resins, in a laminate schedule, the composite takes on new properties that enhance overall quality and functionality (i.e. corrosion resistance, abrasion resistance etc.).

Fibers provide strength, dimensional stability and heat resistance. Additives are easily incorporated into resin systems to provide pigmentation, flame retardance, weather resistance, superior surface finish, low shrinkage and other desirable properties.

Final properties are determined by many factors including the type, amount, and composition of the resin systems and reinforcements. In addition, the use of additives can greatly affect the properties.
