  • Laser Machining Fiber-Reinforced Plastics
    Fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) is a composite structural material containing high-strength fibrous embedded reinforcements which develop mechanical properties greatly superior to the base polymer (called 'matrix' in this context). The fibers are usually fiberglass, carbon, or aramid (a family
  • Design and Construction of NYB FRP Fans
    Fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) made from chemical-grade polyester or vinyl ester resin resists corrosion as well as, or in some cases better than, high-priced materials such as titanium or high-nickel alloys. In general, FRP (also known as RTP, or reinforced-thermoset plastic) is widely used
  • Stainless Steel Specifications for Fan Equipment
    is to provide some. general guidelines to assist in the process. Refer to Engineering Letters 16 and 18 for similar guidelines on corrosion-resistant. coatings and fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) fan construction.
  • Continuous-fiber Extrusions Make Strong Thermoplastics
    A new process combines the economies of extrusion with the strength of composites. CFT materials are stronger, tougher, and more durable than fiberglass-reinforced plastic pultrusions. Tool handles, for instance, are less likely to shatter upon impact, resist UV degradation, can be postformed
  • Strong epoxy bonds without a hitch
    Elkhart, Ind. Araldite 2011 epoxy from The Woodlands, Tex., securely bonds aluminum, plywood, and fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) panels to the vehicle sidewall frames. The epoxy cures quickly with lap shear and roller peel strengths of 2.6 kpsi and 28 pli, respectively. The epoxy stands up well
  • Bonds that take a beating
    teak boat floor boards to a fiberglass-reinforced plastic deck withstands saltwater and heat. An important part of product design is component assembly. Mechanical fastening is the traditional joining method. But structural adhesives are becoming more widely used thanks to recent advances in materials
  • How Material Plays into Enclosure Cooling Design
    Depending on their designated NEMA rating, electrical enclosures--and their cooling systems--can be made from a wide range of materials, including polycarbonate plastic, powder-coated steel, stainless steel, aluminum or fiberglass-reinforced polyester. Although plastic and fiberglass construction
  • Polyester
    Polyester resins, in thermoset, glass fiber-reinforced formulations, have been used for a variety of industrial, marine, and consumer products for at least 40 years. These are the materials of "fiberglass " boats, fishing rods, and automobile body panels. More recently, thermoplastic grades
