Low-cost, High-performance FRP Grating

Global polymer production on the scale present today began in the mid 20th century, when low material and productions costs, new production technologies and new product categories combined to make polymer production economical. The industry finally matured in the late 1970’s when world polymer production surpassed that of Steel, making polymers the ubiquitous material that it is today. Fibre reinforced plastics have been a significant aspect of this industry from the beginning. There are three important categories of fibre used in FRP, glass, carbon, and aramid. Glass fibre reinforcement was tested in military applications at the end of World War Two,Carbon fibre production began in the late 1950’s and was used, though not widely, in British industry beginning in the early 1960’s, aramid fibres were being produced around this time also, appearing first under the trade name Nomex by Dupont. Today each of these fibres is used widely in industry for any applications that require plastics with specific strength or elastic qualities. Glass fibres are the most common across all industries, although carbon fibre and carbon fibre aramid composites are widely found in aerospace, automotive and sporting good applications.

FRP involves two distinct processes, the first is the process whereby the fibrous material is manufactured and formed, the second is the process whereby fibrous materials are bonded with the matrix during the moulding process.

A grating is any regularly spaced collection of essentially identical, parallel, elongated elements. Gratings usually consist of a single set of elongated elements, but can consist of two sets, in which case the second set is usually perpendicular  to the first (as illustrated).  When the two sets are perpendicular, this is also known as a mesh.

I had got gratings made from cast steel for some factories. FRP Gratings is something new I have come across. Thanks for the info.
