What is GRP sheeting? GRP stands for Glass Reinforced Plastic. It is also known as fibreglass. It can be used across a range of applications in lots of different industries.
What is GRP sheeting made of? GRP is constructed from strands of glass fibres that are woven together to create a flexible fabric. It needs to be placed in or around the shape of the item it is required to take, in this case, sheets and so it is a moulded product.
