GRP or Glass fibre Reinforced Plastic is a composite of ‘E’ type glass reinforcement and resin. The glass fibre reinforcement forms the structure of the product, whilst the resin holds the composite together. Depending upon the environment into which the product is intended to be used, a range of resins are available to suit the requirements. For instance:
- In a chemical processing plant a higher grade of resin maybe required to prevent corrosion.
- Where there are potentially flammable products a fire retardant inhibitor maybe required.
