What is FRP?
FRP is essentially a type of composite material, that is obtained by joining glass fibers, which are reinforcing elements, with a resin carrier matrix.
In this case, it can be said that FRP is a high-quality composite engineering material which is resistant to environmental conditions, obtained by combining high mechanical strength glass fiber with plastic resin (for example, polyester) that is resilient but does not have sufficient mechanical strength.
Although the process of combining glass fiber and carrier matrix resin can be done by a variety of methods ranging from simple moulding techniques such as hand laying to the most complex mechanized moulding techniques, the main idea is to wet the glass fiber properly with resin. Resins are polymerized by a chemical reaction and transformed into a hard, insolvable, insoluble substance.
The quality of the FRP composite material is directly proportional to the strength of the bond between the glass fiber and the resin. The physical performance depends on the ratio, distribution and orientation of its reinforcing material, glass fiber, in FRP.
FRP composite products have a wide range of applications due to their superior physical and chemical properties.
and can be used in custom special applications.
What are the advantages of FRP composite material?
The most important factor in the preference of FRP composite materials is the specific properties of the material. These qualities are briefly as follows:
