Fiberglass is a widely used material that became popular in the past few
years. One of the reasons of its relatively recent success is that
it has several advantages compared to the steel: it is
corrosion-free; it has significant chemical resistance and it is a
lightweight material (three times less dense than steel, on
average). These benifit make fiberglass suitable for automotive production, where all these
advantages are very important.
Fiberglass reinforced plastic has strong flexibility and is easy to
form. Fiberglass products can be jointed with each other, and they
can also splice with other material parts. As a result, FRP has
long been favored by domestic and foreign car bodies manufacturers
and scientific research institutions. As we all know, there are
many Ford Model cars for you to choose from. You may know about
1932 Ford and 1934 Ford. Between 1932 and 1934, Ford produced three
Ford models, Model B, Model 18 & Model 40. And Ford 3 window
coupe in 1932 adopt fiberglass car bodies. After that, some kit
car, hot rods and street rod bodies begin to use fiberglass body
panels. Why are they choose the FRP as the body only material?
Compared with the steel plate, if the strength is certain, the
light weight rate of FRP can reach above 36.7. Such as the car
which has a mass of 1360 kilograms, if its weight decreases 10
percent, it can save 8 percent energy. Also, the fiberglass
material has enough hardness and toughness. This may remove part of
the impact force, or produce a rebound when there is a slight
collision. The Fiat Chrysler Automobiles ever did a safety
experiment on Fiat150 glass fiber reinforced plastic cab. When they
applied a load to the top cover, and the load is 50 larger than the
steel cab, the column will not be significantly deformed. Another,
the 40kg pendulum fall from the height of 2 meters and hits the
cab, its coaming will not be deformed. But steel products are
subject to significant deformation. Finally, the FRP has excellent
scratch resistance, corrosion resistance, and anti-aging ability.
It makes the car easily handle problems even under different
FRP application in the auto body
Since the first fiberglass use in the auto body, it has been a
fashion and trend. No matter kit car, hot rods or street rod, they
prefer the fiberglass body only. With the development of automobile
industry and automobile technology, fiberglass car bodies are used
more and more widely. After decades of development, the quality of
fiberglass bodies has improved considerably. Also, fiberglass car
bodies manufacturers in China has formed a certain scale of
production technology and capacity. In the meantime, car
manufacturers in the world have enhanced the recognition degree of
the fiberglass body. There are three main categories of the FRP
application in auto body. They are fiberglass body parts,
structural parts, and functional parts.
They include car body panels, fiberglass toppers, sunroofs,
fiberglass car doors, radiator grilles, running boards, front and
rear bumpers, car interior parts, etc. And this is the main
application of FRP in car bodies. It mainly meets the needs of the
car body streamline design, beautiful appearance and high quality.
Now, the potential for development and application is still huge.
The main material is the glass fiber reinforced thermosetting
plastic. And typical molding processes include SMC(Sheet Molding
Compound), BMC(Bulk Molding Compound), RTM(Release to Manufacture),
hand lay-up, the spraying process, etc.
Fiberglass structural parts include the front bracket, bumper
frame, seat frame, floor, and so on. The aim of using these
fiberglass structural parts is to increase the design flexibility,
versatility, and integrity. And fiberglass car bodies manufacturers
always use high strength SMC, GMT, and LFRT as raw material.
The main properties of functional parts are resistant to high
temperature and oil corrosion. And they mainly include the engine
and engine peripheral parts. For example, engine valve cover, air
intake manifold, air filter cover, gear chamber cover, scoop, air
inlet shield, fan blade, heater cover, water tank, outlet casing,
pump turbine, etc. In addition, the main process materials include
SMC, BMC, RTM, GMT, glass fiber reinforced nylon, and so on. Other
related fiberglass body parts include CNG cylinder, health facility
components in cars or RVs, motor parts, and so on.

Lanmon service tenet is regarding the quality of our life. Until
now, there is zero complaint and zero compensation. We always
provide fiberglass products with the satisfying quality. In
general, we strictly control the truck bodies manufacturing process
and train every staff to work according to the instruction.
Besides, we make the professional assembly and check fixture to
confirm the high quality.
Some fiberglass products have complex design and a high precision
requirement. In this case, we use the three dimensional spot check
to make sure and give customers reassuring body kits. we have
motivation and confidence, and we will keep going on the stable
development of high quality fiberglass.
At present, Lanmon can provide not only fiberglass bodies but also
fiberglass radome, FRP panels, fiberglass tubes, etc. In addition,
we can produce carbon fiber reinforced plastic products, such as
carbon fiber tubes.
