Fiberglass Strength Testing | GRP & GFRP Material Properties

Fiberglass is a plastic matrix composite material that is constructed from a resin and fine glass fibers. It is relatively inexpensive to produce fiberglass, and the end product is light weight, strong and can be applied to a variety of applications. In certain industries fiberglass is referred to as glass-reinforced plastics (GRP), or glass-fiber-reinforced plastic (GFRP). ASTM and ISO have standard test methods that are related to fiberglass materials, and fiberglass products. The standard test methods from ASTM and ISO are general plastic test procedure for determining tensile, bend, adhesion, compression, creep, fatigue, and dynamic properties of fiberglass. ASTM also has standards for testing fiberglass panels, and tubing. These fiberglass testing standards reference the mechanical testing standards for testing procedures. TestResources provides guidelines for ASTM, and ISO standard testing methods for tensile, bend, compression, adhesion, dynamic, fatigue and creep testing fiberglass. TestResources modular test equipment is configured by our applications engineers to match your specific material, sample type and test method. Our product line includes a wide variety of test machines, test software, grips, test fixtures, extensometers, sample preparation aids, and environmental chambers. Call us to discuss your test application. ASTM and ISO Standards for Strength and Mechanical Properties of Fiberglass The following is a list of mechanical test standards from ASTM and ISO that are used to determine tensile, bend, adhesion, compression, creep, fatigue, and dynamic properties of fiberglass. Fiberglass Strength Testing Machines and Equipment TestResources provides testing machines that are capable of performing mechanical testing on fiberglass materials. Fiberglass test machines from TestResources can be used to perform tensile, bend, compression, adhesion, dynamic, fatigue and creep testing. These material testing machines are modular, and can efficiently and effectively be custom built for each application. TestResources builds each fiberglass testing machine to meet the needs of the customer to ensure the highest degree of quality.
