The History

GRP (Glass reinforced Polyester) Was 1st discovered in the late 1940's.  It was quickly adopted in the 1950's & 1960's for a wide range of applications where its corrosive-proof properties, allied with its high strength and excellent appearance, soon proved to be invaluable.  Its first main application was for boat building, where it gained acceptance in the 50's and is till widely used today. The uses of GRP have since broadened to the extent that it is now become the standard material for the construction of small craft, water tanks, building cladding panels, roof lights and of course high performance waterproof coatings.  In the last 10 years a rapid growth has occurred in the GRP roofing industry as more and more people realise the benefits of GRP
