A Material Full of Potential
Fiber Reinforced Polymer, commonly known as FRP or GRP, is a composite material made up of a polymer matrix reinforced with fibers. The fibers in FRP are made of glass which add strength and stiffness to the polymer matrix. This results in a material that is lightweight, yet strong and durable, with excellent corrosion resistance and mechanical properties. Due to these properties, FRP has become a popular choice in a wide range of industries, including construction, transportation, aerospace, and marine. FRP products come in various forms, including sheets or panels, rebars and molded components, and they can be customized to meet specific application requirements. The use of FRP is expected to grow in the future as more industries recognize the benefits of this versatile and innovative material.

Problems with traditional building materials commonly used for roofing & cladding...
Aluminium dents & can de-shape.
Steel rusts which can cause leakage.
Wood rots & attracts insect damage.
As shown above, traditional roofing materials are good but they are not apt for harsh or corrosive environments.
FRP Panels, on the other hand, have the strength of steel at a fraction of the weight, FRP does not corrode, rot, or conduct heat or electricity. Translucent FRP Panels can provide natural lighting which conserves electrical energy and it also blocks 99% of the harmful UV rays and can last for more than 25 years.
Continuous Laminating process
Using advanced technologies for manufacturing composites is what ECPL is known for. The continuous laminating machine process is a manufacturing method used to produce Fiber Reinforced Plastic (FRP) panels. The process involves preparing a resin matrix mixed with reinforcing fibers, reinforcing the fibers with the resin matrix, and passing the reinforced fibers through a series of rollers that apply pressure and heat to cure the resin and fuse the fibers together. The resulting continuous sheet of FRP panel is cut to size, finished, and undergoes quality control checks to ensure it meets the required specifications.
The continuous laminating machine process offers several advantages, including high production speed, which makes it ideal for producing large volumes of FRP panels quickly and cost-effectively. The process also ensures consistent quality, allowing manufacturers to produce panels with uniform thickness and mechanical properties suitable for specific applications. The versatility of the process enables the production of FRP panels in a variety of shapes, sizes, and thicknesses. Additionally, FRP panels produced through the continuous laminating machine process are highly durable, resistant to corrosion, and lightweight, making them ideal for use in harsh environments where weight reduction is a priority.
FRP panels manufactured through the continuous laminating machine process are highly resistant to corrosion and can be used in industries where harsh and corrosive environments are present. For example, in the marine and offshore industries, FRP panels are used to construct lightweight and durable structures that can withstand corrosion. Similarly, in the chemical industry, FRP panels can be used as roofing and cladding to withstand the corrosive effects of harsh chemicals.
Overall, the corrosion resistance properties of FRP panels make them ideal for use in industries where harsh environments and chemicals are present. They provide a durable and cost-effective alternative to traditional materials such as steel or concrete, with the added benefits of being lightweight, versatile, and easy to install.
