The material of Fiberglass sculpture is Fiberglass scientific name glass fiber reinforced plastic. It uses glass fiber and its products (glass cloth, tape, felt, yarn, etc.) as reinforcing materials.
It is a composite material with synthetic resin as the matrix material. The concept of composite materials means that one material cannot meet the requirements for use, and it needs to be compounded by two or more materials to form another material that can meet people’s requirements, that is, composite materials.
For example, a single type of glass fiber, although high in strength, is loose between fibers, can only withstand tensile forces, cannot withstand bending, shearing, and compressive stress, and is not easily made into a fixed geometry.
If they are glued together with synthetic resin, they can be made into a variety of rigid products with fixed shapes of glass fiber reinforced plastic sculptures, which can withstand both tensile stress, bending, compression and shear stress. This constitutes a glass fiber reinforced plastic-based composite material.
Because its strength is equivalent to steel, and it also contains glass components, it also has the color, shape, corrosion resistance, electrical insulation, heat insulation and other properties of glass. Like glass, this easy-to-understand name ‘GRP’ has been formed.
