|Description||Georgian Wired Armaglaze (GRP) is among the toughest glazing material available.
Panels are virtually unbreakable and have a high resistance to impact, shock and wind loading,
whilst maintaining and aesthetic appearance.
|Finishing Surface||Standard surfaces include:
• Smooth / Crinkle
• Smooth / Leatherette
• Leatherette / Leatherette
• Smooth / Smooth
• Crinkle / Crinkle
• Woodgrain / any of the other finishes offered
|Weight Of A Panel||
|Fire Resistance||Products can be manufactured to either:
|Thermal Co-Efficient Of Expansion||30 x 10^(-6) / °C
FACT: Compared with many other plastics GRP has minimal expansion and contraction
characteristics and will not bow and warp in extremes of temperature.
FACT: Significantly lower than glass.
|Impact Resistance||To BS 5544 (cert no: 395-1) and regulation 14 compliant.
FACT: Steel Ball drop test concluded no penetration or breakage of GRP glazing.
|Uv / Light Transmission||Up to 83% depending on thickness and surface texture.
FACT: The inclusion of our unique surface protection membrane can significantly enhance the quality, appearance
and lifespan of GRP Glazing by providing a high level of UV resistance, thus ensuring continued light transmission.
|Graffiti Resistance||A factory applied coating operation ensures simple removal of graffiti with no detrimental surface effects to the panel.|
|Flexural Strength||170 MPa
FACT: Will not bow or flex as much as other glazing plastics.
|Tensile Strength||100 MPa
FACT: GRP sheet is up to seven times stronger than mild steel on a weight for weight basis.
|Tensile Modulus||8 GPa|
|Sheet Dimensions||Fybagard / Fybalyte:
Standard stock sheet size is 8 x 4 (2440mm x 1220mm), but as all panels are manufactured
to customer requirements, virtually any length can be accommodated (bearing in mind
manhandling and delivery issues maximum length is generally 3500mm) – there is a width
restriction of 1525mm.Fybamesh:
8 x 4 (2440mm x 1220mm) or any derivative within these sizes.
|Sheet Strength||Standard product range can be manufactured to literally any thickness with 3mm, 4mm & 6mm being standard.
12mm is usually maximum thickness produced.
|Cutting And Handling||Fybagard / Fybalyte:
Jig saw, Bench saw (using diamond tipped blade) or Guillotine.Fybamesh:
Guillotine abrasive disc, Jig saw (using metal cutting blades). Cut in well-ventilated area using gloves,
eye protection and dust particle masks.
