GRP laminate design and engineering


Manufacturing Process: Laminating

An appropriate number of layers of chopped strand mat is applied to the mould surface to generate the required thickness.

In this instance, 2 layers of 450gm/m2 emulsion-bound chopped strand mat are being applied.

The layers are then bonded with resin; a wide variety of resins are available such as general purpose, chemical resistant (for acid containment), and fire retardants; in this instance, the layers are bonded with a class 2 fire retardant resin as per the clients’ specification.
