What are FRP panels?

Fiber-reinforced plastics, which blend glass and carbon fibers with lightweight plastics, are the basis for FRP panels. Panels with this composition are very solid and strong, but they are very lightweight. Different forms of reinforced plastics, such as CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastics), GFRP (Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastics), and AFRP (Aramid Fiber Reinforced Plastics), can be produced depending on the type of fiber used.

Because of their strength, FRP panels are utilized for tiny components that need to be resistant to punching in addition to larger elements.


These panels are sturdy, lightweight, and thin, which makes them useful for a wide range of applications, from household goods to industrial goods. While larger applications include ship construction, factory light roofing materials, sports vehicle aero parts, and even airplanes, smaller applications include handcrafted lure lips and radio-controlled car chassis.


Reinforcing fibers are impregnated with matrix resin to make fiber-reinforcing panels. The type of fiber, how it is arranged, and the ratio of fiber to resin all affect the panels' strength and stiffness. Glass fibers are shaped in a mold after a protective gel coat resin has been applied to them during manufacture. The next step is to apply layers of plastic resin, and this process is continued until the required thickness is reached. Base materials such as polyester resin, vinyl ester resin, epoxy resin, and phenolic resin are frequently utilized.


  • High strength and low weight

These high-quality industrial panels are substantially lighter than metal materials while still having similar strength. They are several times stronger than steel and have a specific gravity that is far lower than that of iron or aluminum.

  • High environmental resistance

These don't corrode or decay like steel or wood do. However, there are issues with recycling and environmental impact due to its durability.

  • Good weather resistance

These are shielded from environmental degradation by a resin coating. The underlying fibers keep the panel strong even when the resin ages. Because of its ability to withstand rain and UV rays, the material is often used for roofing, especially in parking lots where it is intended to deflect heat radiation.
