Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) System
Developed in the mid 1930s, Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) structural composite technology has been used in various industries from aerospace to infrastructure. In the 1950s, FRP was used in the restoration of historical buildings. By the 1980s, FRP was being used in the rehabilitation of bridge columns, decks and beams, as well as tunnel and marine pier repairs.
Externally bonded FRP composites have become a cost effective and convenient material for rehabilitation of structures damaged by the environment or impact, or increase in load demand.
UTRACO has completed numerous rehabilitation projects using FRP for HDB and LTA.
