Translucent GRP19th May 2015
Whilst GRP as clearly transparent as glass is yet to be invented, translucent GRP has got a lot better. Some transparency is possible so that objects close to the ‘glastic’ are clearly recognizable. And where frosted effects are wanted, its advantages are obvious.
The advantages are that of strength without the weight of glass, for example, should the mood ever take you, you could take a hammer to them! Also, they can be tinted, so rose-tinted baptistries are possible! The added benefit is cost.
The glass could also be used to make splash-proof screens or covers for LED light-boxes or light-weight coloured-‘glass’ windows or numerous other architectural uses within church buildings.
