9 Advantages of GRP
Fibreglass profiles are a cost-effective alternative to traditional materials such as concrete, steel, aluminium or timber.
Whereas these materials have only one primary strength, GRP combines a number of advantages.
This makes fibreglass ideal for the sustainable construction of the future. We have listed the key advantages on this page to give you
a short overview of all the many opportunities that fibreglass products can offer.
1. Low weight
Avius’s GRP profiles are low in weight. This makes them easier to work with and means that great weight savings can be achieved
on the finished structure.
2. Great strength
Avius’s composites give you the same great strength as steel, but at only a quarter of the density. lt is also possible to make weight savings
in comparison with aluminium, as the density is 30 % lower.
Our fibreglass profiles are corrosion free. This makes them ideal for wastewater treatment plants, offshore constructions, swimming pools, cooling towers and construction, where there is a risk of corrosion.
4. Chemical resistance
Our fibreglass profiles are resistant to aggressive chemicals, liquids and alkalis. This makes them ideal for wastewater treatment plants, swimming pools, cooling towers and construction, where there is a risk of corrosion.
5. Electrical insulation
Avius’s GRP profiles provide electrical insulation and minimise the complexity of earthing. This makes our profiles a future-proof choice
where the costs of both installation and future inspections can be reduced considerably.
6. Easy to work with
GRP profiles are just as easy and fast to work with as timber. This means that solutions which incorporate our profiles can be installed easily
on site or adjusted to fit existing components, such as piping systems, etc.
7. Minimal maintenance
Our GRP profiles have unrivalled durability and a long life. even in demanding conditions. Since they are corrosion-free, maintenance is limited to a cosmetic minimum.
8. Low project costs
Aviu’s GRP profiles are corrosion-free and do not corrode or deteriorate in the same way as steel or timber. This means that the profiles have a long functional life, so the cost of expensive replacements can be avoided.
9. Thermally lnsulating
Avius’s fibreglass profiles have a significantly lower heat distribution gradient than steel and aluminium, enabling energy-efficient end products.
