What Does Fiber-reinforced Plastic (FRP) Mean?
Fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) is a composite material made up of polymer that is supported with fibers for added strength. It is commonly used in industries such as aerospace, construction and marine to build structures that require added resistance to force in order to prevent deformation. Fiber-reinforced plastic is useful in terms of corrosion protection because it helps in preventing corrosion due to force application and deformation such as stress corrosion cracking.
Fiber-reinforced plastic may also be known as fiber-reinforced polymer.
