Advantages of glass reinforced plastic (GRP)
Glass reinforced plastic offers several advantages over other kinds of materials. It is corrosion proof, often eliminating the need for interior and exterior coatings, with good chemical and temperature resistance. It also has low thermal conductivity and high electrical insulation. GRP products are also available with increased electrical conductivity and abrasive resistance using additives.
GRP can manufacture spools and complex pipe junctions to reduce the number of field joints, although mechanical joints can be used.
Glass reinforced plastic requires little maintenance as it has low internal friction, with excellent fatigue resistance and high impact strength under cyclical loading.
Quality control systems
GRP has a quality control system that is structured with reference to ISO-9001, which ensures compliance with customer drawings, purchase order and specification, and provides an inspection, testing, recording and traceability system.
GRP only uses sub-contractors that meet the company’s stringent quality guidelines, and that can demonstrate that they operate a quality control system appropriate to the products or processes they work with.
