Nominal Weight of Panel
|These are solid, through coloured GRP panels, designed for use in a general cladding and lining applications. The are manufactured by combining hundreds of thousands of glass strands with pigmented thermoset U.V. resistant resins and gel-coats.
Panel Size and Thickness
Panels can be manufactured to a maximum width of 1500mm and generally a length of 3500mm (however longer panels may be manufactured by special request). Standard product range can be manufactured from 2.5mm thick upwards.
Products can be manufactured to different degree of fire resistance:
- General Purpose (GP grade – all products)
- BS 476 Part 7 Class 1 (surface spread of flame, all products)
- BS 476 Part 7 Class 2 (surface spread of flame, all products)
Unlike other “Plastic” glazing products GRP will not drip, melt or soften in the event of fire. For an explanation of the different ratings “click here“
Panels can be manufactured to the following:
- B.S. 4800 Colour Range
- B.S. 5252 Colour Range
- RAL Colour Range
A colour match service is also available.
Thermal Co-Efficient of Expansion:
30 x 10^(-6) /Deg C
Note: Compared with many other plastics GRP has minimal expansion and contraction characteristics and will not bow and warp in extremes of temperature.
Thermal Conductivity: 0.2w/mK
Tensile Strength: 123MPa
Flexural Strength: 193 MPa
As standard, we used chopped-strand fiberglass… Flexural Strength can be enhanced by the addition of woven reinforcement if required.
Tensile Modulus: 7.1GPa
GRP is 7 times stronger than mild steel on a weight for weight basis
