Fiberglass Structural Profiles

Need to replace wood, steel, or aluminum components with a strong, lightweight, lost-lasting option?  Environmental Composites stocks a comprehensive array of FRP products with a fast order processing.

Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) Products offer reinforced structural shapes  with the strength of traditional building materials but with a longer life cycle.  Lightweight and easy to install and the additional benefit of being built for safety.

FRP Structurals have a surface veil to protect against glass fibers penetrating the resin surface and to provide corrosion and ultraviolet resistance.  

FRP Structurals are offered in three resin series:

  • Standard Polyester (ST): General purpose isophtalic polyester resin, with good corrosion resistance.  Stocked in an olive green color.
  • Fire Retardant (FR): Fire retardant isophtalic polyester with a Class 1 fire retardance, with an ASTM e-84 flame spread rating of 25 or less and low smoke generation.  Stocked in gray or yellow colors.
  • Fire Retardant Vinylester (VE):  Fire retardant vinylester resin with a Class 1 fire retardance, with an ASTM E-84 flame spread rating of 25 or less and low smoke generation.  It is highly corrosion resistant and capable of higher surface temperatures.  Stocked in beige or yellow colors.

*NSF Certified (Food Grade) product available upon request.

Custom colors are available for all shapes.

What are Fiberglass Reinforced Plastics?

Tuesday, April 10, 2018

Fiberglass Reinforced Plastics are made up of synthetic resins that are thermoset (a process that permanently sets material using heat) and fiberglass. Usually pliable, malleable or liquid before being cured, thermoset resins are then designed to be molded into their final desired shape. Once hardened and molded into their final shape, these resins cannot be reheated or melted and shaped differently.

What is the iSkimmer?

Tuesday, March 6, 2018

Stormwater skimmers are not something that most think of, but it holds a very important job. These are commonly found in retention ponds, and their purpose is to stop contaminants (such as oil, grease, and other floating factors) from getting into our natural bodies of water. As stated earlier, the location of these is commonly in retention ponds, which are usually placed in a large grassy area. Due to the typical maintenance of the land, specifically mowing of the grass, this has caused damage to many skimmers thanks to the tractor mowers used. This has become a constant problem and always causes breakage some way or another, so how can it be fixed? The solution is easy; it’s the iSkimmer.

Why fiberglass piers and docks are much better than wooden ones

Tuesday, January 30, 2018

Nothing beats a solid, sturdy, barefoot-friendly pier or dock for a relaxing day by the water. As Floridians, we’ve all seen the damage hurricanes and strong storms can do to typical wooden docks, and for many, we’ve paid a huge price. Many victims of Hurricane Irma are still working to repair damage to their piers and docks, months after the hurricane.
