Fiberglass

ABC

Fiberglass Reinforced Plastics or Fiberglass (GRP)

This is the name given to the composite material of glass fiber over a plastic resin, usually polyester resin (thermosetting).

It is a material used widely in industry and construction, due to its excellent characteristics of high durability.

The choice of fiber glass, to substitute other materials, such as aluminum and steel, is possible due to the advantages of composite material.

Chemicals resistent and rotting resistent

The glass fiber can be exposed to different chemical compounds without damage to the structure of the material. Does not deteriorate and does not rot or suffer attacks of insects, rodents or fungi, even when in high humidity or salinity.

The fiberglass does not present the most common problems encountered in the steel, such as oxidation (rust), or wood, such as cracks and crevices.

Hygiene

Low accumulation of dirt and easy cleaning.

Their maintenance does not require any special care, just a good washing with water, soap or cars shampoo.

The use of automotive wax is the most suitable for maintaining the brightness and color of the parts made of glass fiber.

Low maintenance cost

In pieces made of fiberglass, maintenance costs are low due to the chemical inertness and high weather resistance, inherent to the composite material.

Lightness

Fiberglass is lightweight. The laminates molded by contact have specific weight of 1.4 kg/dm3, for 2.7 kg/dm3from aluminum to 8.7 from steel.

Flexibility Project

Plastics reinforced with fiberglass allow ample design flexibility, enabling the molding of complex parts, large or small, seamless and highly functional and aesthetic value.

Where Fiberglass can be applied?

Chemical and petrochemical industries, food, pulp and paper, power, alcohol and sugar mills, construction, marine industries, aerospace, automotive, refrigeration and more.
