COMPOSITE INDUSTRY – GLASS FIBRE/ FIBRE GLASS REINFORCED PLASTIC (GRP/FRP)

Fiber Reinforced Plastics (FRP) is a composite material made using flass fibres as reinforcements held in place by a plastic / polymer matrix.

The fibers may be randomly arranged, flattened into a sheet (chopped strand mat), or woven into a fabric. The plastic matrix may be a thermoset polymer matrix—most often based on thermosetting polymers such as epoxy, polyester resin, or vinylester resin system —or a thermoplastic.

The FRP / GFRP is stronger than many metals by weight, is non-magnetic, non-conductive, transparent to electromagnetic radiation, can be molded into complex shapes, and is chemically inert under many circumstances. Applications include aircraft, boats, automobiles, bath tubs and enclosures, swimming pools, hot tubs, septic tanks, water tanks, roofing, pipes, cladding, orthopedic casts, surfboards, and external door skins.

Other common names for fiberglass are glass-reinforced plastic (GRP), glass-fiber reinforced plastic (GFRP). Because glass fiber itself is sometimes referred to as “fiberglass”, the composite is also called “fiberglass reinforced plastic”.

The reinforcements could also be carbon fibres, basalt fibres but most common are the glass fibres.

GLASS REINFORCED CONCRETE (GRC) / GLASS REINFORCES GYPSUM (GRG)

Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete or GRC (sometimes called Glassfibre Reinforced Cement and Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete or GFRC) is a mixture of cement, fine aggregate, water, chemical admixtures and alkali resistant glassfibres.

Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete (GRC) is a material which today is making a significant contribution to the economics, to the technology and to the aesthetics of the construction industry worldwide.

This environmentally friendly composite, with its low consumption of energy and natural raw materials, is being formed into a great variety of products and has won firm friends amongst designers, architects, engineers and end users for its flexible ability to meet performance, appearance and cost parameters.

Glassfibre reinforced concrete, GRC / GFRC is one of the most popular materials used for creative prefabricated architectural cladding.

ARCHITECTURAL & AUTOMOTIVE GLASS LAMINATING INDUSTRY

Laminated glass is a type of safety glass that holds together when shattered. In the event of breaking, it is held in place by an interlayer, typically of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) or ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA), between its two or more layers of glass. The interlayer keeps the layers of glass bonded even when broken, and its high strength prevents the glass from breaking up into large sharp pieces.

Laminated glass is normally used when there is a possibility of human impact or where the glass could fall if shattered and also for architectural applications. In geographical areas requiring hurricane-resistant construction, laminated glass is often used in exterior storefronts, curtain walls and windows.

MACHINERY FOR GLASS FIBRE/ FIBRE GLASS REINFORCED PLASTIC (GRP/FRP) / GLASS REINFORCED CONCRETE (GRC)

  • Glassfibre Chopper for Volumetric Concrete Mixers
  • Automatically cuts and feeds the glassfibre into the continuous mixing unit
  • Designed to automatically cut and feed alkali-resistant glass fibre directly into the continuous mixing auger, this low maintenance system enables even fibre distribution and accurate dosing.

INDUSTRIAL & COATING CHEMICALS / SOLVENTS

Industrial coatings are thin films deposited on materials to add or enhance specific properties such as corrosion resistance, wear resistance, conductivity, etc. Industrial coatings are used in production plants and by qualified applicator shops to coat discrete parts, finished assemblies (automobiles, trucks, aircraft, vessels), tanks, piping, metal sheet, continuous webs, wood panels, paper, and paperboard.

The use of industrial coatings involves two steps: application of the resin on the substrate and formation of the film to its surface.
