Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) is a durable, lightweight and low maintenance material solution for tank covers. Its inherently robust characteristics provide a long service life, while its high quantity of recycled materials also offers sustainable credentials.
A&J Fabtech can fabricate GRP to cover almost any size of tank, with our integrated design and fabrications teams able to deliver exact solutions on reduced lead times.
GRP is constructed from layers of fibreglass strands, which are bonded together to create a strong fabric-like lattice. It is easy to fabricate, so can be shaped to serve many variants of tank. It is a material that is often selected by engineers looking to push the boundaries of material technology.
The benefits of GRP include:
- Low weight
- High strength
- Resistance to UV and corrosion
- Produced using recycled materials for sustainability
- Can be fabricated to almost any shape
- Incredibly durable
- More cost-effective than virgin materials
We also carry out extensive NDT (non-destructive testing) and inspections – allowing us to guarantee that your tank cover will offer extended service life. Through such practice, you can gain all the versatility benefits provided by this truly modern material.
