Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP)
Glass reinforced plastic, also known as fibreglass is widely used within the construction industry for the strengthening or refurbishment of existing buildings.
The strength, light weight and reduced construction complexity of GRP offers several, significant, advantages over heavy building materials.
Fibreglass moulds are incredibly strong due to it being a composite material. The strength is increased by using glass fibres and plastic woven together, resulting in a lightweight material. Click here for more industry news.
Before starting a job
It is important to check for any asbestos before starting a job.
Asbestos are silicate mineral used in brake linings and in fire-resistant and insulating materials.
Why is it important to remove asbestos before?
The fibres in the air can cause health problems if inhaled. Asbestos is most hazardous when it is friable so this is why it is important to check for them before starting a job and if possible they need to be removed.
Expert fibreglass moulding manufacturers Stuart Pease can design, manufacture and construct bespoke products. Visit this site for more about glass reinforced plastic.
