What is GRP / Fibreglass?
Glass Reinforced Plastic, also known as GRP, is a strong, lightweight, corrosion and temperature resistant material. It is easily moulded for complex shapes and structures. It can be also extremely cost effective compared to traditional building materials.
GRP consists of thermosetting resins and glass fibres which when bonded together result in a solid fibreglass material.
GRP has been used in the UK and Ireland since the 1940’s. Its primary stronghold began in the marine industry for boat building. Once its high strength, versatility and appearance properties were recognised it was soon in demand across a variety of industries including automotive, construction, water tank building and flat roofing.
