Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP), Revolutionary Choice for Industrial Needs

Today, Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) and metallic type are 2 of the most commonly used support systems in the industrial world. Both are reliable in protecting the structural systems of every industry. In FRP Cable Support System point of view, there are some advantages comparing to metallic system.

FRP is strong enough to replace structural steel. In fact, it is stronger on a weight to weight ratio. It is a high strength fiber embedded in premium polyester, vinyl ester, or other special polymer resin matrix.

In handling impact, it is very reliable. To deal with the impact, FRP will quickly return to its original position without any permanent deformation or deflection. With its lightweight of approximately 80% less than steel and 30% less than aluminum, FRP is highly impact resistant.

FRP pultrusion is also corrosion free. It is rust free, pealing or flaking resistant, and broadly impervious to various chemicals. It also has low thermal conductivity and non conductive. With FRP pultrusion, electro-magnetic shock will be avoided because it is transparent to radio wave, microwaves and other electronic frequencies.

The coefficient of thermal expansion of pultruded FRP products are marginally less than steel and aluminum. And it has excellent mechanical properties at low temperature. FRP pultrusion is also highly fire retardant. Most FRP Cable Support System components meet BS 476 part 7 Class II as standard. However, higher requirements are also available as options. The FRP products incorporate additives and veils to protect them from UV exposure.

FRP also requires easy installation. It is easy to cut and drill using basic hand tools at site. No hot work is required to install this outstanding product.

FRP can be applied to various industry such as:

  1. Mining
  2. Offshore structure
  3. Factory and industrial construction
  4. Airport
  5. Water resources and treatment
  6. Chemical and Petrochemical
  7. Medical and biotechnology
  8. Telecommunication System
  9. Commercial construction
  10. Agriculture

Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) offers revolutionary choice in flooring and decking platform, cable support system, stairs, ladder and construction structure.
