FRP market development prospects are very broad
FRP, also known as GFRP, is a fiber reinforced plastic, generally referred to as a glass fiber reinforced unsaturated polyester, epoxy resin and phenolic resin matrix. Reinforced plastics made of glass fiber or its products as reinforcing materials, called glass fiber reinforced plastics, or glass reinforced plastics, are different from tempered glass.
FRP is a composite material that has developed rapidly in the past 50 years. 70% of the glass fiber production is used to make FRP. FRP has a high hardness and is much lighter than steel. It is used as a fuel tank and pipe on jet aircraft to reduce the weight of the aircraft. The astronauts who boarded the moon, the miniature oxygen cylinders carried on them, were also made of fiberglass.
FRP is easy to process, stainless steel is not bad, no need for paint. China has widely used FRP to manufacture various small motor boats, lifeboats, yachts, and automobile manufacturing industries, which has saved a lot of steel. Because FRP is a composite material, its performance is very wide, so its market development prospects are very broad.
After more than 40 years of development, China's FRP industry has also achieved successful application in various fields of the national economy and played an important role in economic construction.
