Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP): Composite Fiber Rods

Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) is also known as GRP or CSM. Traditional GRP is composed of high strength E-glass fibers impregnated with a variety of specialized proprietary resins.  

Key Features of FIBER-LINE® Fiber Reinforced Polymer: 

  • Sizes Available: 0.50 mm – 5.00mm
  • Dielectric (excluding carbon)
  • Additional up-jacketing available up to 17.00 mm
  • Oval & rectangular shapes available
  • Rod printing available for accurate length reading
  • Splicing & respooling services available


FIBER-LINE® resin chemistry is optimized for process conditions, fiber adhesion, and end-use application of the FRP.  Resin impregnated fibers are chemically cured with thermal or ultraviolet energy to form a highly crosslinked thermoset matrix.


Fibers for FRP:


Performance Adding Coatings:

  • FIBER-LINE® Colorcoat™ Color Identification for easy tracking
  • Swellcoat™: Block Water Penetration (0.90 mm and larger only)


Packaging
FRP products are supplied on a variety of different size wood or plastics reels along with different lengths depending on the customer’s requirements. Alternate package solutions are also available at the customer's request.
