The Composites Business focusses on Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) composites, with products mainly made from Glass Reinforced Polymer (GRP).  FRP is a composite material comprising glass/carbon/other fibres, embedded in a polymer matrix. Its key benefits include light weight, ease of maintenance, corrosion resistance, high strength- to-weight ratio and design freedom.

The FRP business has expanded its market presence through successful product launches in three segments: Infrastructure, Industry and the Railways.

NMB has launched a wide range of FRP solutions in the Infrastructure segment like GRP pipes and streetlight poles. There is also a special focus on city infrastructure solutions which include FRP street furniture, gazebos, fencing, bridges, modular toilets and a range of decorative and translucent poles. Building on the success of installing India’s first FRP based products under various categories, the team is now well placed for offerings in a number of sectors including roadways, railways, waterways, harbours & ports and process industries. 

In the industry segment, FRP pressure vessels for water filtration, FRP tanks and equipment for chemical and iron & steel industries; Portacabins,  Protection guards, Barricades , Gratings, Stair cases have been supplied. These products are best placed to tackle corrosive environments, in addition to being lightweight and offering a long and maintenance-free service life.
