Knowledgeable GRP Specialists

Glass reinforced plastic or as it is abbreviated GRP, is a material made from plastic and glass. This material is more commonly known as fiberglass. The plastic is reinforced with fine fibres of glass, making for a thin yet extremely strong material which is often used when designing motor vehicles such as boats and car but can be used for just about anything where a lightweight but durable structure is needed.

GRP Specialists

GRP is made my gradually melting the components required which is likely to be done in a large furnace. The resulting compound can then be mixed with a resin and set into a mould to form the desired structure. Glass reinforced plastic has many positive attributes not least its strength – especially given the minimal thickness of the finished product. Layering multiple sheets of fibreglass together with the glass fibres alternating directionality can further improve the strength of the material by creating a stiffer, more compact structure. GRP is also extremely lightweight and is a malleable material making it easy to work with.

Although a very versatile material to use, GRP is often very difficult to manufacture due to the requirements of the glass fibres. These fibres must be in immaculate condition with no defects running along the surface. Without this, the final product would not be half as resilient. Therefore, to produce good quality fibreglass requires GRP specialists who have solid experience in extruding useable glass fibre. GRP specialists, including Kingsley’s Plastic Limited, are knowledgeable not only on the manufacturing process but also in the scientific makeup of GRP enabling them to produce the highest quality material.

If you are looking for high quality products including cabinets, kiosks and other equipment housing, which have been manufactured in durable glass reinforced fibre, please speak to a member of the Kingsley Plastic Limited team who have many years of experience as GRP specialists.
