Fiberglass and GRP are terms used interchangeably to refer to glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) materials. The term fiberglass was coined by Dr. Joseph M. Johnson at Owens-Corning Fiberglas Corporation to describe the material he invented in 1936.

Both materials are used for construction and repair of boats, cars, trucks and any other vehicles that require a strong, lightweight material that can be molded into almost any shape. Both materials are also used for non-structural applications such as countertops, headliners and shower stalls.

Fiberglass is made from molten glass fibers mixed with resin under high pressure. The mixture is poured into molds to produce various shapes of parts. After the resin sets up, it is removed from the mold and baked at high temperatures until it is hardened enough for use in vehicles or other applications where strength is needed but weight must be kept down as much as possible.

The main advantage of fiberglass over GRP is its strength-to-weight ratio: A pound of fiberglass will have better tensile strength than a pound of steel but weigh less than half as much. This means that you can use less material to get the same job done while saving money

The Kind of Deliverables You Should Expect Fiberglass and GRP

Some of the advantages of GRP compared to other materials are:

– It is highly cost-effective compared to other materials with similar properties, such as titanium or carbon.
– It’s lightweight compared to its high strength, which is perfect for load-bearing structures.
– GRP is a non-conductive material, which makes it safe and suitable for electrical applications.
– GRP is also resistant to corrosion, which makes it beneficial in environments where rust is usually an issue, such as marine or industrial settings.
– GRP is durable and can withstand a wide range of temperatures, impacts, and chemicals.
– GRP is versatile and can be moulded to any shape and size, and pigmented to any colour.

Some examples of GRP products are:

– GRP gratings, handrails, and flooring for slip-resistant and anti-corrosive surfaces
– GRP tanks, pipes, and ducts for storing and transporting liquids and gases
– GRP panels, cladding, and roofing for building and architectural purposes
– GRP sculptures, props, and art pieces for creative and aesthetic applications
– GRP boats, cars, and sports equipment for lightweight and high-performance vehicles
