Glass Reinforced Plastics and its uses .Glass Reinforced Plastics are the composite materials in which plastics act as the matrix phase and glass fibre act as dispersed phase. The glass fibre increase the strength, hardness, and modulus of elasticity of the plastic. The non-flamability, low cost and corrosion resistance of glass fibre make it a good reinforcing material. GRP has low density, high tensile strength, good surface finish, high resistance to corrosion, etc.
1) It is used in automobile body panel.
2) It is used to make pipes, storage tanks, helmet, speed boats, etc.
