Despite the technological advances of the early 21st century, GRP remains one of the most versatile and best used materials in the manufacturing world
Rotherham, UK, 8 July 2010 – Ever heard of GRP? Chances are you’ve touched some, or sat on some, or been transported by something made of some, today. And yesterday, and the day before. GRP, otherwise known as Glass Reinforced Plastic, is the material of choice for manufacturers of all kinds: from train and bus companies, who will use the stuff in the mouldings of their seats and interior fittings, to chemical works and major industrial plants – where GRP is used to build the huge containers that keep their products under safe control.
Rotherham based mouldings giant Stuart Pease has been in on the GRP game since its inception in the middle of the 20th century. It is the most versatile material for manufacturing objects with complex shapes or superior strength requirements. One look at the client list and a person begins to see what they mean. There are top sports car marques in there – for whom Stuart Pease has made GRP components up to and including whole body shells – ; plus local government offices; world famous theme parks; and even multinational soft drinks empires. Obviously, there’s something in Stuart’s claim that Glass Reinforced Plastic is still top dog in the modern materials world.
GRP works so well because its plastic base allows it to be moulded into virtually any shape – while the glass fibres that run through it form such a complex strengthening bond that it can, in finished shape, be subjected to unbelievable amounts of stress with almost no risk of cracking. That makes it ideal for sports car manufacture and – as noted above – the creation of containers to hold potentially hazardous substances. It’s cheap, too, which certainly helps. As Stuart Pease reminds us – why go for anything more expensive, when GRP is still the best? Interested? Check out www.stuartpease.co.uk.
