What is composite material?

A composite material is an engineered substance created by combining two or more constituent materials with significantly different physical or chemical properties. Among the most recognised and widely used composite materials is Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP), often referred to simply as fibreglass. GRP is made by reinforcing plastic with fine fibres made of glass. The plastic matrix may be a thermoset polymer resin, such as epoxy, polyester, vinyl ester, or a thermoplastic.

The strength and flexibility of GRP come from the glass fibres, while the plastic matrix binds the fibres together and distributes stress among them. The process of creating GRP typically involves laying down glass fibres in a mould and then introducing the resin either by pouring, spraying, or through vacuum infusion to completely saturate the fibres. The resin then cures, hardening the composite and giving it shape. This method allows for the production of a wide range of products, from water tanks and boat hulls to automotive parts and industrial equipment.

GRP stands for Glass Reinforced Plastic, highlighting its two primary components: the glass fibre for reinforcement and the plastic resin for the matrix. This combination results in a material that offers high strength, lightweight, and corrosion resistance, making it an excellent alternative to traditional materials like metal, wood, or concrete in many applications.

What are the benefits of GRP material?

The benefits of GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) material are numerous, making it an increasingly popular choice across a wide range of industries. Key advantages include:

  • Corrosion Resistance: GRP is highly resistant to corrosion from chemicals, water, and environmental factors, making it ideal for use in harsh or corrosive environments.
  • High Strength-to-Weight Ratio: Despite being lightweight, GRP offers exceptional strength and durability, rivalling or exceeding that of metal in some applications.
  • Durability and Longevity: GRP has a long service life due to its resistance to wear, tear, and environmental conditions, reducing the need for frequent replacements.
  • Design Flexibility: The material can be moulded into a wide variety of shapes and sizes, allowing for great flexibility in design and the creation of complex forms.
  • Low Maintenance: Unlike materials that rust, corrode, or decay, GRP requires minimal maintenance, saving time and money over its lifespan.
  • Non-Conductive: GRP is an excellent insulator, making it safe for applications where electrical conductivity could be a hazard.
  • Thermal Insulation: It provides good thermal insulation, which can be beneficial in reducing energy costs in certain applications.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: While the initial cost may be higher than some traditional materials, the longevity, low maintenance, and durability of GRP can lead to lower total cost of ownership over time.
  • Environmental Impact: GRP products are often more environmentally friendly than alternatives like steel or aluminium, as they require less energy to manufacture and can be designed to be recyclable.


These benefits make GRP an attractive option for a wide range of applications, from construction and automotive to marine and industrial uses, offering a versatile and efficient material solution.
