Fiberglass Materials has advantages over other traditional construction materials like Steel, Wood, Concrete in Fire-Proof, Rust-Proof, Light-Weight and Cost-Effective.

There are a lot of applications of Fiberglass in Construction Industries. Unicomposite Technology has rich experience in providing solutions for the benefit of clients in construction industries.

Here are some case studies about brilliant applications of Fiberglass in construction industries, which provide a long term cost-effective and efficient solution.

 

Bridge Made in Fiberglass 

Fiberglass Made Bridge is an effective solution for quick and cost saving water crossing. 

It was first Dr. Johansen from University of Pennsylvania came up with the idea of using light weight but strong material Fiberglass to design an cost effective and easy construction modular bridge in year 1987. Dr. Johansen has founded E.T.Techtonics, an bridge desgin firm to realistic his brilliant idea, in year 2016 then E.T.Techtonics was purchased by Creative Pultrusions. 

The basic structure of Fiberglass Bridge are normally Beam Structure Bridge and Truss Structure Bridge. By prefabricating Fiberglass Bridge Modulus, it makes the process of designing and building a pedestrian bridge much easier than traditional way due to Fibergalss Materials’ special mechanical function. 

A popular Fiberglass Pedestrain Bridge Modulus contains following composites: 

Fiberglass Beams, which takes in bridge structure the most overload. 

Fiberglass Bridge Decks, that only takes part of the bridge overload in bridge structure. 

Fiberglass Sheet Piling

Sheet piles are sections of sheet materials with interlocking edges that are driven into the ground to provide earth retention and excavation support. Sheet piles are commonly used for retaining walls, land reclamation, underground structures such as car parks and basements, in marine locations for riverbank protection, seawalls, cofferdams, and so on. 

Fiberglass Sheet Piling with a high strength to low weight ratio, easier handling and more economical shipping than conventional steel sheet piles which offers a cost effective, long term and low maintenance solution for vertical barrier systems; 

Fiberglass Materials are widely used along sea beach, back yard pool etc with highly corrosion resistant, environmentally sensitive material,Compatible with abnormal pH levels, and resistant to acids, salts, non-aqueous phase liquids and other corrosive chemicals 

Fiberglass rebar 

Fiberglass rebar is a spiral wrapped fiberglass structural reinforcing rod made from a combination of fiberglass roving and resin. Fiberglass Rock rebar is suitable for any structural or architectural application where a material that is corrosion resistant, lightweight, or non-conductive is required.   

FRP rebar offers many benefits over steel ones: 

① Light weight---1/4 the weight vs. steel rebar

② Non-corrosive and unsusceptible to any chemical attack  

③ Electrically and thermally non-conductive
