GRP for containers in the transport industry

Robust - lightweight - visually appealing - unique


LAMILUX produces fibre-reinforced plastics based on polyester and epoxy resin on several production lines in an industrial flat sheet process. The fibre composite material is used in various fields of application as a face sheet for sandwich panels or as panels in the container industry. Our fibre-reinforced plastics (GRP) are used there as an outer shell.

From refrigerated containers to tank containers

LAMILUX GRP Container

For safe transport in difficult conditions

Containers of all kinds are subjected to very high mechanical loads during loading and transport; whether as containers on a cargo ship or as tank containers on trains or on a truck. 
In refrigerated containers in particular, low temperatures must be maintained using as little energy as possible over very long periods of time. LAMILUX Composites ensure exactly that: safe, energy-efficient transport of food in refrigerated containers.

Containers made of GRP benefit from this

LAMILUX GRP Container

Fibre-reinforced plastics protect the wall cladding on the inside of the containers with their extreme impact-resistance. Their stiffening effect also lends extreme stability to the entire container construction. Additional outstanding features are the material's thermal insulating properties and low thermal expansion rate due to its high fibre content.

  • High impact resistance and robustness
  • Maximised service life
  • Reduction of downtime
  • Prestigious appearance even under the toughest conditions
  • Reduced operating costs thanks to weight reduction
  • Higher payloads possible due to lightweight design and lower weight
  • Easy to clean and no corrosion 
  • Resistant to sunlight and effects of weathering
  • Avoidance of thermal bridges with reinforced materials
  • Reduced maintenance and repair costs
