GRP stands for glass reinforced plastic. The plastic is a matrix of reinforced fibres and fine glass. Our GRP pipes are manufactured using composite materials—including sand, glass fibre and thermosetting resins. GRP is lightweight, extremely strong and produces a corrosion resistant pipe.
Where is GRP pipe used?
The range of applications for GRP pipes is broad: sewer and drainage systems, potable water, raw water, irrigation, hydropower penstocks, industrial pipe systems, cooling water, sea intakes and outfalls, to name a few.
What is GRP and FRP pipe?
A: FRP stands for fiber-reinforced plastics, it’s a term typically used stateside here in North America. GRP is a term that means the same thing. But it’s generally used over in Europe and Asia and stands for glass-reinforced plastic.
Which is better GRP or FRP?
The mechanical strength and elasticity of the plastics in FRP are made richer by including other materials. It is highly resistant to heat and other corrosive substances. While FRPS is used widely in automotive, aerospace and the construction industry; GRP is more popularly used in the power industry.
