What is fiberglass?

Fiberglass is a thermoset matrix composite also identified by the acronym FRP, which stands for Fiberglass Reinforced Polymers.
The glass fibres with high mechanical strength form the structural part of the material, while the resin acts as a filler and is the chemical-resistant waterproofing matrix that enables the correct distribution of stresses.

The advantages of fiberglass

Fiberglass features advantages that traditional materials do not have simultaneously and it is suitable for many applications.

  • High mechanical strength-to-weight ratio
  • High chemical inertia
  • Weathering and UV resistance
  • Low thermal and electrical conductivity
  • Durability
  • Non-toxicity
  • Lightness
  • Ease of installation
  • Maintenance-free
