Today?s society can?t be without FRP

Posted by zccyfiberglass on November 26th, 2015

FRP is almost in everywhere in this society, from basic organic materials such as adobe mud bricks to complex composite materials such as fiberglass reinforced panels, in the last centuries, composite materials evolved rapidly, and nowadays, a life without composite materials would be unimaginable.


One such evolution is the development of advanced reinforcements and fabrics used in Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) composites. In the last ten or twenty years, great advancements have been developed in fiber type and properties.


Additionally, novel developments have been developed in fiber architecture and proprietary weaving techniques.


These advancements allow for traditional materials such as steel and aluminum to be replaced with fiber reinforced composites. One industry which is beginning to adopt this transition of materials is the automotive industry.


For example, the U.S. Army uses 3D Glass Fabrics for its MATV defense vehicles, specially designed for moving around in the rugged terrains of Afghanistan. By using 3D Glass Fabrics, designers have achieved a significant weight reduction of 75% of critical exposed parts of the MATV.


Eco-friendliness, safety and fuel-saving are key to modern day vehicle production. Traditional heavy materials like steel do not contribute to this goal. Therefore, the incorporation of light weight composite materials in vehicles, such as fiberglass fabrics, is becoming a common design practice for reducing vehicle weight and achieving fuel saving.
