FRP introduction

FRP definition:

FRP, also known as GRP, is a fiber reinforced plastic, generally referred to as glass fiber reinforced unsaturated polyester, epoxy resin and phenolic resin matrix. A reinforced plastic made of glass fiber or its products as a reinforcing material, called glass fiber reinforced plastic, or glass fiber reinforced plastic.

Advantages and disadvantages of FRP :

Lightweight and strong :

The relative density is between 1.5 and 2.0, only 1/4~1/5 of carbon steel, but the tensile strength is close, even FRP to over carbon steel, and the specific strength can be compared with high-grade alloy steel. As a result, it has achieved excellent results in aerospace, rockets, spacecraft, high-pressure vessels, and other applications that require weight reduction. Some epoxy FRPs have tensile, bending and compressive strengths of more than 400 MPa. The density, strength and specific strength of some materials.

Good corrosion resistance:

FRP is a good corrosion-resistant material with good resistance to atmospheric, water and general concentrations of acids, bases, salts and a variety of oils and solvents. It has been applied to all aspects of chemical corrosion protection and is replacing carbon steel, stainless steel, wood, non-ferrous metals and so on.

Good electrical performance:

It is an excellent insulating material used to make insulators. Good dielectric properties are still protected at high frequencies. It has good microwave permeability and has been widely used in radomes.

Good thermal performance

FRP has a low thermal conductivity of 1.25~1.67kJ/(m·h·K) at room temperature, and only 1/100~1 FRP hard hat/1000 of metal is an excellent thermal insulation material. In the case of instantaneous ultra-high temperature, it is an ideal thermal protection and ablation resistant material, which can protect the spacecraft from high-speed airflow at 2000 °C.

Good designability:

1 According to the needs, flexible design of various structural products to meet the requirements of use, can make the product has a good integrity. 2 can fully select the material to meet the performance of the product, such as: can be designed to resist corrosion, resistance to transient high temperature, the product has a particularly high strength in a certain direction, good dielectric properties, and so on.

Excellent craftsmanship

1 The molding process can be flexibly selected according to the shape, technical requirements, use and quantity of the product. 2 The process is simple, can be formed at one time, and the economic effect is outstanding, especially for a product with a complicated shape and a small amount of molding, and the process superiority is further emphasized.


Low modulus of elasticity:

The elastic modulus of FRP is twice as large as that of wood, but 10 times smaller than steel (E=2.1E5). Therefore, it is often insufficient in rigidity and easily deformed in the product structure. It can be made into a thin shell structure or a sandwich structure, and can also be compensated by high modulus fibers or reinforcing ribs.

Poor long-term temperature resistance:

Generally, FRP can not be used for a long time at high temperature. The strength of general-purpose polyester FRP is obviously lower than 50 °C, generally only below 100 °C; general-purpose epoxy FRP is above 60 °C, the strength is obviously decreased. However, it is possible to select a high temperature resistant resin so that a long-term operating temperature of 200 to 300 ° C is possible.

Aging phenomenon:

Aging is a common defect of plastics. FRP is no exception. It is easy to cause performance degradation under the influence of ultraviolet light, sand, rain, snow, chemical medium and mechanical stress.

Low interlaminar shear strength:

The interlaminar shear strength is borne by the resin and is therefore very low. The adhesion between layers can be improved by selecting a process, using a coupling agent, etc., and most importantly, avoiding shearing between layers during product design.

FRP market application:

FRP is a kind of composite material. Due to its unique performance advantages, FRP material has been used in aerospace, railway railway, decorative building, home furniture, advertising display, craft gift, building materials sanitary ware, yacht parking, sports materials, sanitation engineering, etc. It has been widely used in more than ten related industries and has been highly praised, becoming the darling of demand in the new era of materials industry. FRP products are also different from traditional materials, which are much better than traditional products in terms of performance, use and life properties. Its easy-to-shape, customizable, and color-adjustable features are favored by merchants and sellers, occupying a growing market score and a bright future!
