GRP performs like 'The Hulk'
- By Roger Rusch, Managing Director – IWC South Africa -
GRP is a relatively modern composite material composed of strands of glass. Each individual glass fibre is very fine with a small diameter, and they are woven to form a flexible fabric. The fabric is normally placed in a mould and a resin is added. The process is repeated so that there are many layers of fibre glass and resin and allowed to cure. The plastic matrix may be epoxy, a thermosetting plastic (most often polyester or vinyl ester) or thermoplastic. The resulting material is very strong and light.

IWC recently launched its new glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) manufacturing facility in Isando, Ekhuruleni, which is one of only two GRP plants of this kind in South Africa. The manufacturing facility development is in response to the lack of local fiberglass manufacturing facilities and a growing demand for fibreglass equipment and piping in South Africa.
