GFRP, CFRP, Fiber Reinforced Polymer


Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) composite material has good demand in today’s world because it offers excellent property as always desirable. Glass Fiber Reinforce Polymer composite material offers high strength to weight ratio, low coefficient of thermal expansion, better connection with environmental condition, corrosive resistance, easy to fabricate then metallic parts. Some specific advanced applications such as aerospace required still better properties. Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP)gives better Elasticity modulus, better strength but cost is high. Hence, Combination of these two, GFRP and CFRP gives economical better solution over higher cost of CFRP. Current study is based on glass fiber reinforce polymer and Glass/Carbon fiber reinforce polymer at different environmental condition, mainly at lower temperature and at lower temperature. At low temperature conditioning, it was observed that continuously decrease in ILSS and that significantly reduction was observed at Ex-situ conditioning. Above experiment shows G/C FRP shaws better result than GFRP.
