What is GRP?

Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP) is often better known as the trade name "Fibreglass". Since its discovery at the end of the second world war it GRP has been used in many application which need a lightweight material which is very strong, waterproof and highly resistant to corrosion and sun and rain. GRP is made from a polyester resin which is reinforced by short glass fibres in the form of a mat. The Polyester Resin together with the Chopped Strand Mat form a laminate. GRP also has the advantage of a beautiful finished appearance.
