FRP CatalogFiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) is a composite made from fiberglass reinforcement in a plastic (polymer) matrix. By reinforcing the plastic matrix, a wide variety of physical strengths and properties can be designed into the FRP composite. Additionally, the type and configuration of the reinforcement can be selected, along with the type of plastic and additives within the matrix.
Crane Composites has 50 years of experience in the frp industry and is the world's largest manufacturer of frp products.
LTP panels can be used for roof, wall, and ridge applications in your Farm/Ag or Metal Building. They let natural daylight and passive solar heat in, reducing your energy costs, while keeping the weather out. LTP panels also stand up to tough conditions and will resist heat, cracking, crazing, and harsh chemicals. Ultraviolet screening agents are also added for long lasting translucency and years of trouble free performance.
LTP panels are available in over 500 shapes and can also be custom matched to suit your metal building needs. Panels are also available in various formulations to meet whatever strength, weatherability, or fire ratings necessary. LTP panels are available in 5oz, 6oz, and 8oz. weights.
NEW!! SunStrong is the Next Generation of daylighting panels. Crane Composites developed this new fiberglass reinforced composite panel using an advanced polymer resin system with superior UV inhibitors and color stabilzers. In extreme solar environments, the SunStron resin provides the best weathering performance ever seen. SunStrong panels maintain excellent color stability.back to top
PolyStrong Polycarbonate panels feature the latest in product technology and are an effective alternative to traditional glazing materials in a wide variety of applications. Extensive research and development ensure all PolyStrong sheets have a high resistance to the harmful effects of weather. PolyStrong panels offer UV protection as well as impact resistance against hail damage. These panels are currently available in standard R-Panel and Grand Rib III profiles; colors include translucent white and clear.back to top
General Purpose panels are produced with general purpose resin. The panels contain UV stabilizers to protect the panels from the harmful rays of the sun, providing years of dependable service for the metal building industry. This panel formulation provides the foundation for our other panels that are specially designed to provide enhanced performance to meet your specific needs. back to top
Duralite (AKA Acrylic Modified) panels contain an acrylic monomer to enhance weatherability in applications involving exposure to sunlight, assuring clarity. Panels are available in all standard corrugations, widths and colors. back to top
Fire Rated panels are produced with a fire-rated formula that contains specially modified resins and other additives to reduce the spread and intensity of flames. See fire resistance comparison chart. Due to the nature of the formulation, the fire-rated panel will tend to display different weathering and UV performance than a non-fire rated panel. back to top
Gel Coated panels are made with a thick, flexible, gel coating chemically bonded to the surface to protect the panels and increase their weather resistance and service life. back to top
High-Strength panels have over 800% greater tear resistance than ordinary translucent frp panels. These panels contain a woven cloth fiberglass reinforcement that protects tears from developing into a body-sized hole. Available in all panel profiles and formulations. back to top
STANDING SEAM ASSEMBLY SYSTEMS
Assemblies are custom built to meet all code requirements. The standing seam assemblies are individually engineered to accommodate the full range of standing seam designs, whether 90° modular or trapezoidal. They are engineered to work with all forms of locking mechanisms including seamed, double seamed and batten locked.
