Popular fibreglass products on the East Coast 

As technology and installation processes have improved, flat roofs have become increasingly popular. With various methods and materials, flat roofs are used on a variety of projects, from garages and extensions to outbuildings and commercial structures. GRP is one of the most common flat roof materials. Recent developments in application methods, combined with increased health and safety concerns regarding traditional torch-on roofing, have led to a recent increase in popularity. Due to its waterproofing properties, GRP is used in a variety of applications, such as seals and pond liners, as well as roofing. In addition, it is resistant to saltwater, so it can be used on properties near the coast without causing damage.

GRP Roofing products are perfect for coastal towns as they are corrosion resistant, and our Roofing Topcoat also contains UV stable properties.

Polyester Resins

Polyester Resins are a standard ‘go-to’ product for many fibreglass builds and repairs. These resins are used across a wide range of industries including; Roofing, Automotive, Construction, Marine and Arts. Most resins require a catalyst addition of 2% which will give a working time of approximately 20 minutes. Clear Casting Resin however requires just 1% - 1.5% catalyst addition. This is to ensure that the resin does not yellow during the curing process. For more information on Clear Casting Resin - read our instructional guidelines.
