Plastics have changed the way we live today, in a way they have made the world lighter. The various types of plastics that we come across are PVC, PTFE, HDPE etc. Another kind of plastic which is gaining its due prominence is GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic). GRP generally referred as a plastic is basically a composite material.
In composites (such as reinforced concrete), two materials act together synergistically, each complementing the other. GRP products are made with fiber glass integrally-bound in a matrix of unsaturated polyesters which are a type of thermosetting plastic, i.e. thermally stable plastic that are significantly superior to other plastics in mechanical properties and can withstand adverse environmental conditions much better. The glass fiber provides it with the required mechanical strength, while the resin gives it the properties of a plastic like smoothness, resistance to corrosion etc.
Given the various advantages of GRP, it is replacing other materials in various applications like vessels, tanks, aerospace components, wind turbines etc at an accelerating pace.
