time:2020-5-27

Current market and application of Fiber Reinforced Polymer Composites

  • Transportation: 32%
  • Construction: 21%
  • Corrosion-resistant equipment: 12%
  • Electrical/electronic: 11.5%
  • Marine: 11%
  • Consumer production: 6.5%
  • Others

Opportunities and Challenges of FRP Structural Profiles

  • Highway Structures

For example: bridge deck/beam/abutment panel/rebar/dowel bar/pole/post/signboard and signpost/guardrail system/sound barrier/drainage system

  • Utility Pole
  • Wind Energy
  • Blast Protection of Structures
  • Decking for Navy and Marina

The reason of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites or advanced composite materials are very attractive for these applications due to

  • High strength-to-weight
  • Stiffness-to-weight ratios
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Light weight and potentially high durability
