An oversized FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic) composite sheet that measures 49.5 x 97.5 in., versus the industry standard of 48 x 96 in., avoids fabrication objection by allowing for a more secure sheet around the edge during CNC machining.
The sheet’s polyester resin, compression-molded FRP properties use a lower level of glass. This makes it easier to fabricate than pultruded composite panels. Multiple sheets can be machined at one time because the high glass content in pultruded sheet may become ragged and break during the process of multi-panel machining.
