FRP Pultruded profiles is stronger than structural steel on a pound-for pound basis. It has been used to buildings, walkway, sub-floors and platforms.
FRP is 20-25% the weight of steel and 70% the weight of aluminum. FRP profiles are easily transported, handled and lifted into place. Total structures can often be preassembled and shipped to the job site ready to installation
FRP will not rot and are impervious to a broad range of corrosive elements. This feature makes frp a natural selection for indoor or outdoor structures in pulp and paper mills, chemical plants, water and sewage treatment plants, structural near salt water and other corrosive environments.
4. Electro-magnetic transparency
FRP are transparent to radio waves, microwaves and other electromagnetic. It is widely used to make antennas.
FRP has low thermal/ electrical conductivity.
The coefficient of thermal expansion of FRP Pultruded profiles is slightly less than steel and significantly less than aluminum.
FRP are pigmented throughout the thickness of the part and can be made to virtually any desired custom color. Special surfacing veils are also available to create special surface appearances such as wood grain, marble, granite, etc.
