Fibreglass (Also called glass-reinforced plastic , GRP) sheeting is produced using glass fibers in resins within a thermosetting process.
Common uses of fiberglass include boats, automobiles, baths, hot tubs, water tanks, roofing, pipes, cladding, casts and external door skins. Polycarbonate sheeting is produced using thermoform plastic. Polycarbonate sheets are easily worked, molded, and thermoformed.
