  • A fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) (also Fibre-reinforced polymer) is a composite material comprising a polymer matrix reinforced with fibres. The fibers are usually fiberglass, carbon, or aramid, while the polymer is usually an epoxy, vinylester or polyester thermosetting plastic. FRPs are commonly used in the aerospace, automotive, marine, and construction industries.
  • A structural reinforcing bar made from filaments or fibers held in a polymeric resin matrix binder. The FRP Bar can be made from various types of fibers such as Glass (GFRP) or Carbon (CFRP). FRP bars have a surface treatment that facilitates a bond between the finished bar and the structural element into which they are placed.
  • Fiber reinforced polymer materials are composites consisting of millions of thin and high strength fibers embedded in a polymeric resin. Fibers in an FRP composite are the load -carrying elements, while the resin maintains the fibers together and aligned as a compact unit, also protecting them against the environment and possible damage.
  • FRP bars are an alternative to steel rebar in many applications and to steel plate-bonding techniques for structural strengthening.
  • Recently, composite materials made of fibers embedded in a polymeric resin, also known as fiber-reinforced polymers, have become an alternative to steel reinforcement for concrete structures. Aramid fiber reinforced polymer (AFRP), carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP), and glass fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP) rods are the commercially available products for the construction industry.
  • The development of the advanced FRP composite technology from the aerospace stealth aircraft and commercial industries is an engineer’s dream for innovative structural design and application.
  • The basic stages of production for RPCs are compounding and processing. Polymers and reinforcing materials are compounded with a variety of fillers to minimize resin requirements and additives that change the physical properties of the desired composite. Processing involves shaping and/or molding the compounded plastic material into the desired final product. A wide variety of RPC processes have evolved to facilitate efficient production of many different types of composites with different physical properties.
  • RPC production processes can be separated into two broad categories: open molding and closed molding. Open molding refers to
    processes where the plastic resins, polymers, reinforcements, and other additives are exposed to the air during the shaping and/or curing stages of processing. Closed molding processes isolate the input materials inside closed molds during the mixing and curing stages.
  • The earliest commercial uses of FRP composite rebar are approximately twenty-five years old. These original applications were for non-magnetic or radio-frequency transparent reinforcements for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) medical equipment and specialized defense applications. FRP composite rebars have emerged as the industry standard for this application, eclipsing stainless steel in recent years.
  • The key advantages of fiber-reinforced composites, such as free-form and tailored design characteristics, strength/weight and stiffness/weight ratios which significantly exceed those of conventional civil engineering materials, high fatigue resistance, and a high degree of inertness to chemical and environmental factors, are often overridden by high materials and manufacturing costs, particularly in direct comparison with conventional structural materials such as steel and concrete.
  • RPCs are an input into the production of a variety of products ranging from children’s toys to aerospace components and bathtubs to boat hulls.
  • The demand for RPCs is derived from the demand for these products, which can be found within one of the following major segments of the market for RPCs: Aircraft/Military, Appliances/Business Machines, Construction, Consumer Products, Corrosion Resistant Products.
  • The cost of FRP materials continues to decrease and the need for aggressive infrastructure renewal becomes increasingly evident in the developed world, pressure has mounted for the use of these new materials to meet higher public expectations in terms of infrastructure functionality
