FLATSHEET

FRP Sheet FRP Flatsheet

San Diego Plastics, Inc. fiberglass pultruded flatsheet offers the same physical appearance as our structural line of products, however the properties differ slightly.

The primary use for fiberglass flatsheet is to adhere a non-slip coating to the surface and cover FRP grating panels and structural shapes. Other applications include gusset plates; splice plates, FRP washers ranging from 1" diameter up to 47" diameter, and base plates.

Applications Benefits
Chemical Processing Plants Fire Retardant / Corrosion Resistant
Electronic Manufacturing Facilities Electronically non conductive
Meat Processing Plants USDA accepted
Plating Facilities Corrosion Resistant
Bottling Facilities NSF Certified when applicable
