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.
