Fiberglass is a material composed of the agglomeration of very thin non-rigid glass filaments that are highly flexible. When added to polyester resin (or another type of resin), it becomes a compound popularly known as fiberglass, but in fact the correct name is GRP, ie “Fiberglass Reinforced Polymer”.
PRFV has high tensile, flexural and impact strength and is widely used in structural applications. It is light and does not conduct electric current and is also used as a structural insulator. It allows wide design flexibility, allowing the molding of complex parts, large or small, seamless, with great functional and aesthetic value.
Fiberglass has exceptional resistance to environments that are highly aggressive to conventional materials. The chemical resistance of glass fibers is determined by the resin and laminate construction. It can be produced in simple and inexpensive molds, enabling the commercialization of large and complex parts with low production volumes. Protection changes are easily made in the production molds, eliminating the construction of new molds. Maintenance costs are low due to the high chemical inertness and weather resistance inherent in the material.
