Fire Resistance

Products can be manufactured to different degree of fire resistance:

Fact:

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

Colour Range

  1. B.S. 4800 Colour Range
  2. B.S. 5252 Colour Range
  3. 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

Cleaning & Maintenance:   

In order to achieve an ongoing desirable aesthetic effect, panels should be cleaned as part of a regular maintenance plan.  Panels can be cleaned by washing with soapy water, rinsed then wiped with a dry cloth avoiding smears – avoid using an abrasive medium on the surface of the panels.  Exposed edges should be regularly re-coated with either a clear polyurethane varnish or a coloured topcoat supplied by the manufacturer.  “On-site” cuts and drill holes should be appropriately sealed in a similar fashion, and mastic can be used to fill or seal drill holes.
