Fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) (also called fiber-reinforced plastic) is used extensively throughout the construction and building materials industries. It can be used to strengthen beams, columns and slabs in buildings. Among other significant features, FRP is resistant to moisture, mold, mildew, bacteria growth, chemicals and stains. It has high impact strength, and a sanitary finish. In addition, it is low maintenance and is easy to install.
We trust Crane/Kemlite for all of our FRP panels. Crane Composites is the leading source for FRP panels and trims. It is the only FRP brand with the new Surface Seal technology - making it 10 times easier to clean over other brands.
