GRP Fiberglass piping

Glass fiber reinforced plastics (GRP) are a composite consisting of at least two different materials.

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.

Pipes made of centrifugally cast glassfiber reinforced plastics (GRP) consist of a combination of thermosetting plastics such as for example unsaturated polyester or vinyl ester resins, chopped glass fibers and reinforcing agents. The standard wall structure ensures that the individual materials bring their special features to bear in the finished composite.

 They are used, for example, in the following industries:

  • Water and wastewater engineering (pipes, tanks, manholes)

  • Chemical industry

  • Power stations

  • Desalination plants
