LICHTGITTER - FRP Products
Staying true to the motto "Everything from one source", Lichtgitter has expanded the sales by various fiberglass-reinforced FRP products, thus reinforcing its leading position as a manufacturer and supplier of floor coverings. The versatility of FRP products in almost every industry makes this expansion especially interesting.
The components resin, fiberglass, additives and dyes are the basis of the composite FRP, which is very versatile in its form and practicability.
The resin that is used determines the chemical resistance, flexibility and UV resistance of the FRP product. Depending on the application, different types of resins are used. FRP products can be made from orthophthalic resin, isophthalic and vinylester resin (with extremely high chemical load), whereby Lichtgitter uses isophthalic resin as the standard. The special feature of the phenolic resin is the high fire resistance and the very low smoke production.
As a reinforcement, continuous glass filaments are woven in a plurality of layers.
Additives such as flame retardants, hardeners, accelerators and UV stabilizers are further components.
The standard color of the Lichtgitter FRP gratings is gray, similar to RAL 7035. Color pigments allow the coloring of the FRP product. This results in various architectural design options or warning and signal designations.
