What are the Advantages of Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP)?

We assume you would have at least some knowledge over what fiberglass reinforced plastic is and how they are fabricated. Then, the next question that gets thrown all the time is – “What are the advantages of Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic?

Among all of the advantages possibly listed, here are the all-time favorites:

Corrosion Resistance
The prime reason for businesses in adapting fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) is because of their superior resistant for corrosion. In many scenarios, they are the only materials that possess such properties in withstanding extreme conditions. Also, FRP is relatively economic in devising an industrial system and solution. Corrosion resistance of FRP is a function of both the resin content and a specific resin used on the laminated surface. Resin content is directly proportional to corrosion resistant rating in general.

Weight Advantages
Another advantage of FRP is the low weight. That being said, FRP is still tremendously strong for industrial expectations. For comparison, FRP is 1/7 lighter than steel while being as strong. Light weight property is extremely important when it comes to cost consideration. All these are contributed from say logistics, installation, maintenance etc. FRP pipes and tanks can be mounted on existing structures due to the lightweight properties (scrubbers on mezzanines or rooftops), eliminating the need on a total overhaul.

High Strength
Probably not as important for corrosion-resistant equipments, high strength is still something several industries are looking for in numerous applications, for example, missiles, pultrusions and more. On top of these high strength is still considerably important for general purposes like filament wound pipe and duct.

Economy
Cost. Cost is something every business tries to save on. When we compare with similar offerings in the market for corrosion services, rubber lining etc. FRP is miles ahead cheaper. In most cases and solutions, FRP offers a better solution with flexibility, and at a lower cost. The cost is highly dependant on types of application, design consideration, product configuration, site environment, raw materials, availability and the list goes on.

Flexibility
FRP is well known for its flexibility and variation in different applications. It is best for many applications because you can do many things with FRP. You get to mold almost any shapes possible, on different configurations or even just a piece of equipment. For ducting and piping, you can mold different types of elbows, joints, tee inlets, flanges etc. Best of all these only requires minimal tooling cost. It is alos possible to use FRP to line existing structures.
