What Are The Main Material Properties?
With GRP Rods and GRP Tubes, there are some main material properties that make them the number one choices for many different application areas such as mechanical engineering, construction, and electrical engineering. One of the main material properties of rods and tubes is the fact that they are corrosion and chemical-resistant. Further material properties also include low thermal conductivity, weather resistance, and high elastic recovery properties.
What Are The Main Application Areas?
GRP Tubes and GRP Rods are used for a number of application areas. As well as the ones already mentioned above, GRP rods and tubes can also be used for water treatment, greening systems, solar systems, wind turbines, agriculture, filtration technology, and measurement technology. The main colours to select from that we have readily available in our store to purchase today include black and white.
Are GRP Rods Better Than Conventional Rods?
Conventional rods are mainly manufactured from wood and or aluminium. And while they still may have a place in the industry, they no longer compare with GRP rods that offer much better strength, stability, and reliability. Unlike materials such as wood, GRP rods do not compose and they are not at risk of rust formation which makes them a particularly popular choice as they require little maintenance. Furthermore, they are also electrically insulating.
