What Is FRP and When Should I Use It
Fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) grating is an industrial flooring used in a wide range of industries. It is typically found on sidewalks and elevated platforms.
FRP grating is extremely durable, non-corrosive and non-conductive, which often makes it a safer alternative to other flooring materials that are traditionally used in harsh and high-risk environments.
In this article, we'll learn how FRP grating is made, some of the benefits of using it, and where you might find it commonly found.
How is FRP grating made?
FRP grating is made from a combination of fiberglass and resin. The fiberglass gives the finished product its strength, while the resin makes it resistant to corrosive substances.
What is the difference between molded and pultruded FRP grating?
Molded FRP grating is a grid consisting of horizontal and vertical layers of liquid resin and continuous fiberglass roving. As the name implies, it is made from large metal molds.
The multi-directional strength of molded FRP grating means that no additional reinforcement is required to make room for ductwork or to navigate cutouts for complex floor layouts. Another advantage of molded FRP is that it is available in standard sizes and can be ordered in bulk and stored until needed.
Pultruded FRP grating uses a different manufacturing process. It takes resin and fiberglass and combines them in a series of steps to form a new composite material.
It does not use molds, so there is greater flexibility in creating different shapes and sizes. And there is usually less waste. Pultruded FRP grating has a higher glass-to-resin ratio, increasing its strength and span capacity.
Other uses for FRP grating include
● Commercial grade walkways
● Drainage covers
● General commercial flooring
● Trench covers
● Machinery enclosures
● Decks and elevated walkways
● Pool decks
● Screens and shields
● Steps and stairs
● Track crossings

Activated Alumina and Silica-alumina Gels
Silica-alumina gels are made by adding different amounts of alumina to fine-pore silica. The adsorption performance depends on the alumina content. Silica-alumina gels can be used alone in applications with high free water content or liquid water. The product range offers high compressive strength and low dust content.
General Guide to Pharmaceutical Intermediates
Intermediates are a very important type of fine chemical products, in essence, a class of "semi-finished products", mainly used in the synthesis of pharmaceuticals, pesticides, coatings, dyes and fragrances. In the pharmaceutical field, intermediates are used to produce APIs. So what exactly is a pharmaceutical intermediate? Please follow Boze to understand!
