FRP products have many advantages, many customers also choose to use FRP material when choosing the material of radome because of this. So what are the advantages of FRP radomes? Many friends may be entangled in the customization radome because of the material problem, do not know how to choose in ABS, ASA, FRP material.
Why are radomes custom-made out of fiberglass?
Without further ado, let’s see directly through the results of the wave property test. The wave permeability from high to low is ASA, glass fiber reinforced plastic, ABS, so it seems that glass fiber reinforced plastic is not the best wave permeability, so why do we still choose glass fiber reinforced plastic to make radome? The reason is that the application environment of radome is usually outdoors, and it will be exposed to wind, rain and sun every day, so users have relatively high requirements on its strength and durability. If you use ASA material to make radomes, you must take good care of them when you use them, because ASA radomes are easy to damage.
In contrast, the advantage of FRP radome is even more prominent. The reason why FRP radome has a steel word is that it has the same strength as steel, but its weight is only a quarter of that of steel. It can be used in harsh desert environments in the North and South Poles. Specially made, it can withstand temperatures between -200 and 95 degrees, so it won’t be afraid to work in extreme cold.
With that comparison, the advantages of FRP radomes are obvious. Why not choose a FRP radome that will last for more than a decade? Of course, if the customers who have high requirements for wave permeability and can accept short-term use, they can also choose ASA material radome.
