What Is Glass Reinforced Polyester?
Glass reinforced polyester is very self-explanatory as a polyester material reinforced with the addition of fibreglass. This material is used in all fibreglass roofing system and is produced by combining thermosetting polyester resin and glass fibres under strict and controlled factory conditions.
Glass fibres are then applied into the resin with each layer of fibre facing different directions. This ensures the final material that is created has the stiffness and strength to be used in roofing. Glass reinforced polyester was originally developed for different applications during WW2 by the British military. Whilst its main use now is to create effective roofing systems, it is still a fantastic option for all homeowners.
