Glass fiber reinforced plastics (GRP) are a composite consisting of at least two different materials. GRP piping sized per specs The benefits of each material are united to achieve an overall effect. A binder or matrix and reinforcing material is commonly used to combine the physically differing raw materials. Their molecules do not bond but they form a composite by joining their boundary layers. What is important is that the constituents are compatible in terms of properties and processing. This technology originated in the aviation and arms industry where particularly light high-performance materials are required.
