THE BENEFITS OF POLYESTER

Fibre-glass reinforced polyester is a composite which is extremely resistant to corrosion, and which is currently unrivalled in the construction of enclosures, cabinets and shelters for the electrical industry in general.

OF FIBRE-GLASS REINFORCED POLYESTER COMPARED TO GALVANISED OR PAINTED STEEL:

   Unrivalled resistance in saline, chlorine, sulphur, urban or chemically aggressive environments.
   Superior resistance irrespective of the quality of the coating of the steel – no oxidisation or rust.
    With an equal mechanical resistance rating (IK10), polyester is half as heavy as steel.
    Polyester is an electrically insulating material (class II).
    Rate of thermal insulation is distinctly superior (less risk of condensation).
   No specific protection needs on site (bitumen coating…).

OF FIBRE-GLASS REINFORCED POLYESTER COMPARED TO ALUMINIUM:

•    Distinctly superior resistance in saline, urban environments etc.
•    Additional anti-corrosion coating not required.
•    No electrolytic corrosion caused by contact between 2 metals in a damp environment.
•    Polyester is an electrically insulating material (class II).

OF FIBRE-GLASS REINFORCED POLYESTER COMPARED TO STAINLESS STEEL:

•    No corrosion even in chlorine and saline environments.
•    No corrosion caused by electrical effects
    With an equal mechanical resistance rating (IK10), polyester is half as heavy as stainless steel.
    Polyester is an electrically insulating material (class II).

The lifespan of your chosen system and the protection of your equipment depend first and foremost on their outer casing.
