Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) is a polyester material reinforced by adding glass fibre. Glass fibres are applied into the resin with each layer of fibres facing different directions, enabling stiffness and strength of the finished material to be controlled. This results in a strong, lightweight material that is naturally watertight.
Reinforcing structures using GRP is the modernized method of ensuring quality, design and lifetime to the structure. GRP in itself can be used for multiple purposes in the field of architecture. Polux is prominent in designing GRP claddings, edifices, ornamental pieces, support structures, foundations and an unlimited number of other elements, displaying the versatility of the material.
GRP is very safe to use in harsh climatic conditions and does not emit any chemicals post installation and is a very eco-friendly material. GRP members are now a trend as they proe to be ‘greener’ methods and ‘safer’ materials. After its maximum life term, GRP can be broken down into its component materials, which can then be recycled into new materials, displaying the recyclability of the material, value for money as well as benefiting the environment.
