What is GRP?
GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) consists of a matrix of polyester resin reinforced with filaments of glass fibre. The characteristics of GRP vary depending on the type of glass and resin used in manufacture. By combining GRP with other materials, it can be suited to a wide range of different applications.
The versatility and innate properties of GRP make our range of cladding panels ideal for many applications across all market sectors. Proof of its versatility can be seen in Marine construction, Railways, motor vehicle bodies, drainage and guttering pipes, septic and interceptor tanks, architectural feature work and cladding.
