Fibre Glass Roofing Services in Wirral

GRP stands for ‘Glass Reinforced Plastic’ a material made from a polyester resin, which is reinforced by chopped strand mat glass fibres to form a GRP laminate. It is a very popular composite material to use because not only is it very strong but also surprisingly light. Invented in 1938 it was originally used on boats and water containers but has since been developed and become one of the most widely used materials in the construction industry. Today’s GRP is far superior to that of the forties and fifties, although the principal is still the same – a durable, lightweight, flexible, fully reinforced and waterproof material capable of being moulded to any shape.
