FRP Angle – An Excellent Substitute For Iron

FRP Angle – An Excellent Substitute For Iron







Iron angle is one of the most common building components out there but what if it doesn’t fit a job? Are any of the key priorities of the job:

  • Corrosion-resistance
  • Low/zero maintenance
  • Electrical non-conductivity
  • Transparency to radio waves
  • Low heat transfer
  • Weight savings

If one or more of those traits are priorities in your application than FRP angle may be an excellent substitute for standard iron angle. FRP angle* is stocked by the manufacturer in many sizes from 1″ x 1/8″ (thick) to 6″ x 1/2″. These angles are all manufactured using the three standard EXTREN resin systems: EXTREN 500 for general use, EXTREN 525 for fire-retardancy, and EXTREN 626 for especially demanding applications where extra corrosion-resistance is needed.

While the FRP angle is more expensive than traditional angle iron, it simply offers properties that metal angle cannot. To get a quotation on FRP angle for your project, please contact us.
