Use of FRP

Glass fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) is a kind of composite material which has developed rapidly in the past 50 years. 70% of the output of fiberglass is used to make fiberglass. FRP has high hardness and is much lighter than steel. It can be used as fuel tank and pipe in jet aircraft to reduce the weight of aircraft. The astronauts who landed on the moon also carried miniature oxygen cylinders made of fiberglass. Fiberglass is easy to process, rust free and does not need paint. China has widely used FRP to manufacture various small motor boats, lifeboats, yachts, and automobile manufacturing industries, saving a lot of steel. As glass fiber reinforced plastic is a kind of composite material, its performance has a wide range of applications, so its market development prospects are very broad. According to relevant statistics, there are about 40000 kinds of FRP products developed in the world. Although each country has its own development direction according to its own economic development, it has basically involved various industrial sectors. After more than 40 years of development, China's FRP industry has also achieved successful application in various fields of the national economy and played an important role in economic construction.
