GRP / Kevlar / Carbon fibre composites
Composites – the materials of choice for a number of high-tech applications
Modern GRP composite materials are now widely used in high-tech applications such as in the aerospace industry; wind turbine blades and wherever high performance, low weight and low cost are important.
Composites are a range of reinforced materials; offering numerous advantages over traditional materials. They are generally lightweight – yet incredibly strong – and offer a wide selection of radical designs… whilst remaining extremely cost effective to produce.
- Durable: Chemical resistant, Non corrosive, Good weatherability, Strong
- Versatile: Flexible design, Adaptable
- Economical: Low tooling costs, Cost effective
- Attractive: Good finish, Lightweight, organic appearance
Mouldings, from as small as a cup holder; to as large as a double decker bus front end – and everything in between – are all suitable applications for GRP.
GRP is the ideal material to produce mouldings with radius’ and curves, giving products a flowing organic look and feel.
All Colours & Finishes
The surface gelcoat of a GRP moulding can be specified in virtually any colour – and in both gloss and matt finishes. Painting the surface can add different looks and textures.
GRP mouldings can be specified to conform to the requirements of BS476 Part 7 , Class 1 and class 2. Phenolic GRP mouldings can be specified to conform to the requirements of EN:45545-2.
