Fiber reinforced composite

Fiber Reinforced Composite

This is a type of advanced composite group, which make use of rice husk, rice hull and plastic as ingredients. This technology involves a method of refining, blending and compounding natural fibres from cellulosic waste streams to form a high strength fibre composite material in a polymer matrix. The designated waste or base raw materials used in this instance are those of waste thermoplastics and various categories of cellulosic waste including rice husk, saw dust.

FRC is high performance fibre composite achieved and made possible by the cross linking of cellulosic fibre molecules with resins in the FRC material matrix through a proprietary molecular re-engineering process to yield a product of exceptional structural properties.

And through this feat of molecular re-engineering selected physical and structural properties of wood are successfully cloned and vested in the FRC product and to which are added other critical attributes to yield performance properties superior to contemporary wood.

This material unlike other composite, it can be recycled up to 20 times, this is allows scrap FRC to be reused again and again.

Application

There are also application in the market, which utilize only waste materials. Its most widespread use is in outdoor deck floors, but it is also used for railings, fences, landscaping timbers, cladding and siding, park benches, molding and trim, window and door frames, and indoor furniture.
