History on Fibreglass
GRP (Glass Reinforced Polyester) was discovered in the late 1940’s. It was quickly adopted during the 1950’s and 60’s for a wide range of applications where its corrosive-proof properties, allied with its high strength and excellent appearance, soon proved to be invaluable. Its first main application was for boat building, where it gained acceptance in the 50’s and is still widely used today. The uses for GRP have since broadened to the extent that it is now become the standard material for the construction of small craft, water tanks, building cladding panels, roof lights and of course high performance waterproof coatings. In the last ten years a rapid growth has occurred in the GRP roofing industry as more and more people realise the benefits of GRP. GRP has been used as a waterproof material for over fifty years for applications as diverse as boats, water tanks, lorry and car bodies, roof lights, ponds and pools. When used to construct a boat, GRP will provide complete waterproofing protection for the boat’s entire lifespan of twenty plus years without the need for maintenance or replacement. This same level of performance is easily replicated on a domestic roof. The durability and lightweight properties of GRP make it the ideal construction material for applications as diverse as lorry aerofoils and roofs, boats, ponds and automotive body panels. GRP is also used in hostile industrial settings for applications such as tanks and underground pipes; this is due to its ability to withstand high temperatures and its resistance to chemicals. Unlike other roofing materials, GRP has properties that render it ideally suited to small craft construction. As well as being an inexpensive material, it is robust, flexible and will never corrode. A number of RNLI lifeboats are constructed completely from GRP; these vessels are used in heavy weather for inshore rescue. GRP is also used throughout the automotive industry for after-sale body kits, body repair kits, kit cars, and body panels for production cars.
