FRP I-beams are commonly used to make load-bearing piles and pillars. The broadside and web thickness of the I-beam are approximately the same. In tall buildings, I-beams supported by columns are also used to carry very large loads. In addition, FRP I-beams can provide a balance of external forces in the direction of parallel and vertical webs, and I-beams are particularly suitable for resisting seismic forces.
The forming process of FRP I-beam:
The basic components of pultruded FRP profiles are resin and glass fibers (including cloth, felt, etc.), which are reinforced with fibers (including glass fibers, carbon fibers, organic fibers, and other metal and non-metal fibers), and resin (mainly Epoxy resin, polyester resin, phenolic resin) as the crosslinking agent, supplemented by other auxiliary materials (main accessories: mold release agent, curing agent, catalyst, molding agent, UV light stabilizer, mold cleaning water, gel coat, etc. ) are compounded.
The performance characteristics of FRP I-beam:
FRP I-beam has the characteristics of corrosion resistance, lightweight, and high strength, good dimensional stability, insulation, non-thermal conductivity, beautiful appearance and easy maintenance, and almost no maintenance costs.
Applicable industries of FRP I-beam:
It is often used in chemical processing plants, food and beverage processing, paper industry, sewage treatment, and transportation industries.
FRP I-beam has structural stability, will not be deformed after a long time of use, and also has good surface characteristics, which helps to reduce the phenomenon of scaling and has a longer service life. FRP I-beam can be used in various insulating parts, mechanical structural parts, and other structural parts. The application in the construction industry avoids the inconvenience of wood in construction.
