Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP)
Glass Reinforced Plastic also commonly known as Fiberglass and Fiber Reinforced Plastic (FRP). It is a composite material. This means consists of two or more essential materials with significantly different physical or chemical properties. Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) is exactly what it suggests. GRP is plastic reinforced by fine fibers made of glass and resin.
GRP is flexible, strong, durable, light-weight. As such, it’s used in many different industries. Organisations may use GRP for Architectural Structures, Construction Materials, Safety Apparatus and Boat Manufacturing, to name a few. Read here about how Agecko saved their client £18,000 per annum.
Manufacturers who use GRP will naturally produce waste throughout the production processes. Historically, 100% of this problematic waste stream would have gone as General Waste. It will have gone straight to landfill. However, Agecko’s ‘in-house’ waste specialist has found a new solution. We use an alternative greener, GRP recycling solution.
