FRP Product Advantages

FRP Grating is a meshed square, providing molded, pultruded and phenolic gratings. The standard size is 1220 x 3660 mm, but also other sizes are available. Our gratings have a variety of types with exquisite appearance, light weight, high strength, good conductivity, easy installation and long service life. The gratings are flame retardant meeting IMO standards or low flame spread, smoke and toxicity.

The phenolic gratings are approved by USCG for level 2 fire resistance testing and can be used in some areas with special fire resistance requirements, such as the aisle of liquefied gas carriers and offshore platforms.

Advantages of Products in contradiction of steel:

  • Light Weight
  • Excellence Corrosion Resistance Ability
  • Long Service Life
  • Excellence Media Transmission Ability
  • Low Coefficient of Thermal Conductivity & Thermal Stress
  • Excellent Electromagnetic Insulation
  • Easy Installation
  • Low Operation / Maintenance Cost

GRE / GRP Product Advantages

GRE (Glass Fiber Reinforced Epoxy) pipe is a new type of composite material with the epoxy resin matrix. Our partners GRE pipes are made by the winding process. The product design complies with IMO Resolution A753 (18) Guidelines and Type Approval requirements of all the major classification societies.

The internal pressure of these kind of pipes is 16 bar and the external pressure rate is 3.8 bar. All piping systems meet the IMO – L3 level fire resistance requirement.

Typical Use of GRE / GRP Products:

  • Scrubber Installations
