    two distinct categories of moulding processes using FRP plastics

    Issue Time:2013-10-16

    Fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) (also fibre-reinforced polymer) is a composite

    material made of a polymer matrix reinforced with fibres.

     

    There are two distinct categories of moulding processes using FRP plastics;

    One is composite moulding and the other is wet moulding. Composite moulding uses

    Prepreg FRP, meaning the plastics are fibre reinforced before being put through

    further moulding processes. Sheets of Prepreg FRP are heated or compressed in

    different ways to create geometric shapes. Wet moulding combines fibre

    reinforcement and the matrix or resist during the moulding process.[2] The

    different forms of composite and wet moulding, are listed

    below.
