FRP Sheets have very long life, as these are tough and flexible. FRP Sheets are resistant to extremes of weather, as these are waterproof, termite proof, and Acid proof Provides Day Light. FRP Sheets are translucent and hence provide essential daylight in long industrial sheds. FRP Sheets are used for natural daylight in long industrial sheds and provides day light for day work and reduces electricity consumption. FRP Sheets have good thermal & electrical properties.
Fiber reinforced plastic sheet and panels are made by combining two or more materials (fibers with matrix materials) to give a unique combination of properties such as high strength, fire resistance, and chemical resistance. FRP panel consists of a continuous phase called matrix and a dispersed phase called reinforcement. These sheets and panels are employed in various end-use industries such as construction, transportation, industrial, sports, energy, aerospace, consumer goods, and electrical & electronics.
Demand for FRP sheets and panels has increased significantly in the manufacture of aircraft. FRP sheets and panels can also provide higher flexibility, as these materials can be tailored to meet design requirements. They also offer significant weight advantages. The market size of continuous laminated FRP panels & sheets is projected to reach USD 1,084.7 million by 2021, registering a CAGR of 6.53% between 2016 and 2021.
