GRP Walkway, Antucoya project, Chile

An Industrial GRP walkway for the Antucoya project in Chile: the challenge was to create a composite (corrosion resistant) structure that is safe to walk on and that can withstand earthquakes. The installation of the walkway, as well as the stairs, as reported by the customers, took place without any issues.

Chemical/corrosion resistance

Composite materials are resistant to a lot of chemical products such as acids, hydroxides, crude oil, etc. Corrosion resistance against salt and seawater is excellent.

Low maintenance

Steel structures typically require periodic maintenance such as conservation and paint systems to prevent corrosion. Composites are not susceptible to corrosion resulting in lower Life-cycle costs.

High strength

In general, fiber reinforced plastics outperform metals (e.g. steel and aluminium) in strength.
