  • Formglas FRP Specifications
FRP by Formglas is a versatile lightweight material that is durable and may be cast in a virtually endless array of shapes, colors and textures.

Fiberglass reinforced plastic FRP

Fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) is a thermoset plastic composite constructed from many combinations of polymer resins, organic fillers, and fiberglass reinforcements engineered to achieve a desired performance from the product being produced. The greatest advantage of a fiberglass composite is the design flexibility it offers to architects, designers and fabricators, and the long-term durability of the material.

FRP by Formglas
