Glass Reinforced Plastic

EFAH GLASS REINFORCED PLASTIC (G.R.P)

Glass Reinforced Plastics (GRP) or Fiber Glass Reinforced Plastics (FRP) are rigid structures that are part of the wider composite material family. The composite is made up of glass materials and polyester resin, which has outstanding molding properties and a variety of desirable properties such as lightweight, high strength, high stiffness, durability, chemical tolerance, electrical properties, aesthetic appeal, and so on. In addition, GRP is heat, ideal sound, and corrosion resistant; and cost-effective as well. 


GRP is a long-lasting and sustainable product offering outstanding corrosion protection; and highly tolerant of the most challenging environments. GRP products are utilized in many industries, which include oil and gas, fertilizers and other chemical products, marine and sewer systems, and commercial and residential building design. In our purpose-built facility, our highly professional team of skilled designers, technicians, engineers, and quality control panel work together to create a variety of GRP products using specialized techniques. In addition to production according to predefined international standards and specifications, EFAH offers consultancy, design, installation and commissioning services.



To know about Glass Reinforced Plastic?


Glass fiber or another product serves as the reinforcement in glass reinforced plastic, which is composed of synthetic resin as the primary basic material and is then processed into a solid by molding and setting. Unsaturated polyester resin, vinyl ester resin, and epoxy resin are some of the synthetic resins used to create GRP. (Ortho and iso resin)


Benefits of Glass Reinforced Plastic?


High tensile strength, low weight (about 1/4 the weight of steel), corrosion resistance, non-conductive characteristics, radar transparency, and electromagnetic neutrality are all advantages that work together to create a product that is extremely cost-effective, long-lasting, and sustainable.


Disadvantages of GRP?


GRP has a fairly limited number of drawbacks. To manufacture a GRP mold, however, a pattern or tool is always needed, and depending on the scale and complexity, this can get expensive. This pattern only needs to be created once and since it is the client's property, it can be used again in the future as needed.


Some GRP Uses:


a. Commercial – Grease traps, gully traps, crate, grill and other custom made items

b. Residential – Pergola, decorative features, casting shutters, sculptures etc.


Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GRC/GFRC) ability to Construct Lightweight Panels—GFRC panels can be far thinner than conventional concrete panels, making them lighter even if their relative density is equivalent to that of concrete. High Compressive, Flexural, and Tensile Strength — The high glass fiber content gives the concrete a high tensile strength, while the high polymer content makes it flexible and crack-resistant. In situations where obvious flaws are unacceptable, proper reinforcing with scrim will further strengthen the strength of the products and is essential.

Is glass reinforced concrete sustainable?


As compared with precast concrete and plenty of different building materials, it's far actually “greener” and makes a non-negligible contribution to a sustainable built surroundings. Moreover, the greenness of GRC may be advanced through proper layout, cautious selection of uncooked materials and manufacturing technologies.


Is glass fiber reinforced concrete heavy?


Despite the fact that GFRC is significantly lighter than precast concrete 1850 Kg/M³ whereas the portland cement concrete weight around 2450 Kg/M³  


Where is glass reinforced concrete used?


Glass fiber concretes are particularly used in outdoors constructing façade panels and as architectural precast concrete. Somewhat comparable materials are fiber cement siding and cement boards.

Why are glass fibers used for reinforcement?


The stiffness of glass fiber is decrease than that of different reinforcement fibers, but it possesses the awesome advantage of mixing a completely excessive energy with low density and, most of all, a very affordable price. Glass fiber will stay used as a main reinforcement fiber well into the future.
