GRP Roofs

Glass fibres have been produced for centuries. In fact, the ancient Egyptians were able to produce glass and transform it into fibres. The issue however, was that they could only make a small amount at a time and that the produced fibre was very coarse.

The Glass fibres that we know of today were accidentally created by Russell Games Slayter when he was welding two glass blocks together, unexpectedly a jet of compressed air hit a stream of the molten glass and created and shower of glass fibres. This discovery allowed them to determine how to mass produce glass strands

From this point, the process of manufacturing fibre glass or Glass Reinforced Plastic has been developed even more. It is now used within the majority of industries to the point where almost everyone will have something that has been produced in GRP.
