The Heart of Development

New Materials Business offers a wide range of products made of Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) composite materials for the Process Industry segment.

The benefits of using FRP materials in Process Industry are unique and unmatched. Being lightweight, FRP has a very high strength-to-weight ratio and is easier and cheaper to transport within a manufacturing unit. FRP has anisotropic properties and its mechanical properties can be controlled and made directional using the fibre-resin ratio, choice of fibre and resin and by selecting the optimum fibre orientation. Moreover, FRP is fully corrosion-resistant and is thus one of the best materials to use in the corrosive environments of many process industry.

FRP products do not require frequent painting or regular maintenance, offering a very long maintenance-free service life.

FRP also imparts an excellent surface finish.

Essential and frequently used in many process industries, NMB also manufactures Gratings, Ladders, Staircases, Handrails and Crossovers in standard, as well as customised varieties.
