How different industries benefit from fiber composite plastics - insights from aXpel composites

Fibre-reinforced plastics (FRP) are increasingly in demand in many industries due to their outstanding properties such as weight savings, high strength, corrosion resistance and design flexibility. In this article, aXpel composites examines how FRP parts are used in different industries and what benefits they bring to these industries.

Automotive industry

The automotive industry benefits from FRP parts by developing lighter vehicles that consume less fuel and have lower CO2 emissions. FRP parts also allow the design of complex and aerodynamic shapes that improve vehicle performance and efficiency.


The use of FRP parts in the aerospace industry enables the production of lighter aircraft and spacecraft, resulting in improved energy efficiency and cost savings in fuel and maintenance. FRP parts also offer greater strength and durability in extreme conditions.

wind energy

Wind turbines benefit from the use of FRP parts in rotor blades and tower structures. Lighter, stiffer and corrosion-resistant materials enable greater energy production and longer equipment life, resulting in greater profitability and sustainability of wind energy projects.


FRP parts offer the construction sector innovative solutions such as fiber-reinforced plastic reinforcement, profiles and panels. These materials resist corrosion and offer longer life and lower maintenance costs than traditional steel and concrete structures.

Sports and leisure items

FRP parts are widely used in the manufacture of sports and leisure items such as bicycle frames, skis, snowboards, tennis rackets and fishing rods. The use of FRP in these products allows for better performance, greater strength and durability while reducing weight.

Electronics and electrical engineering

The insulating properties of FRP parts make them an attractive option for the electronics and electrical engineering industries. FRP parts can be used in housings, control cabinets and printed circuit boards and offer protection and stability for sensitive electrical components.

Fibre-reinforced plastics (FRP) are revolutionizing a wide range of industries by offering innovative and high-performance solutions that outperform traditional materials. From the automotive and aerospace industries to construction, wind energy, sports and leisure goods, electronics and electrical engineering, companies are reaping the benefits of FRP parts. At aXpel composites, we pride ourselves on developing bespoke FRP solutions that help our customers improve the performance, efficiency and sustainability of their products while remaining competitive in their respective markets.
