Vetrolite extra-thick super light FRP panels

Vetrolite has been developed to meet the needs of the American motor home market. The increased thickness of this FRP panels makes it possible to create exceptionally level panels without compromising the weight of the structure. The special production technology makes it possible to produce laminates that are much lighter than those of equal thicknesses produced in a conventional manner.
